As many automobile manufacturers have shut down production as a response to the global pandemic, Harley Davidson has also done the same. Harley-Davidson closed its Pilgrim Road Powertrain Operations facility after an employee tested positive for the COVID-19 coronavirus and is thoroughly cleaning and disinfecting the building, as per the company’s coronavirus response protocol. Harley-Davidson has said the factories as well as at its York and Tomahawk facilities will remain closed until March 29th.
During this time Harley-Davidson will continue monitoring the situation closely and make additional adjustments as necessary in accordance with World Health Organization (WHO) and Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) guidelines. The majority of its U.S. production employees will be on temporary layoff with medical benefits. The company will use this time to continue deep cleaning and disinfecting its production areas and common areas to further protect workers upon their return.
