Tesla's enormous Shanghai facility is resuming operations. In what's known as a "closed-loop system," it will reopen. Only workers who have received two vaccination doses will be permitted to enter the workplace, and each will be subjected to daily nucleic acid tests for the first three days following their return.

The factory will reopen under a "closed-loop system," which Shanghai officials are promoting as a way to bring workers back to work while also adhering to the country's zero-covid policies. Under the city's current COVID laws, this essentially means that no one goes in or out: staff will reside and work inside the plant, with the first "shift" arriving earlier this week and scheduled to stay until May 1st.

Each employee will be given a sleeping bag and mattresses, sleeping areas, showering, dining, and relaxing facilities. Every employee gets three free meals every day and a daily compensation of approximately 400 yuan ($63). Only workers who have received two vaccination doses will be permitted to enter the workplace, and each will be subjected to daily nucleic acid tests for the first three days following their return.

Tesla is also extending working hours in an attempt to make up for the roughly 40,000 cars it hasn't been able to produce since the facility closed on March 28th. Employees will not only live and dine at the plant but will also labour six days in a row for 12 hours.
