Despite the state’s shelter-in-place order that has kept the facility closed since March 23rd, Elon Musk turned the lights back on at the Tesla factory in Northern California. “Tesla is restarting production today against Alameda County rules. I will be on the line with everyone else,” tweeted the CEO Monday, adding, “If anyone is arrested, I ask that it only be me.” The inability to roll cars out of the plant has led Musk to say he’d move the company’s operations out of California and into neighboring Nevada or even Texas. In a statement over the situation, the county replied, “We are addressing this matter using the same phased approach we use for other businesses which have violated the order in the past, and we hope that Tesla will likewise comply without further enforcement measures.”
What do you think will happen if the factory remains open?
