I wonder if this means the MME team is back in the lab and testing facilities now?

Bronco Sport production had already been pushed back two months, to September 7, at Ford's Hermosillo, Mexico, facility. Based on the latest publicized timeline, the Job One for the F-150 happens in Dearborn on October 12 and in Kansas City on November 9. We had previously never gotten dates for Bronco and Mach-E production any more specific than "fall" and "availability late this year." We know Ford's Cuautitlan Stamping and Assembly Plant (CSAP) in Mexico produced pre-production Mach-Es in February. Also in February, Ford said the Mach-E would launch in Europe and the U.S. simultaneously, and in late April Ford Norway sent customers an update that deliveries of the electric crossover would begin in November as planned. With a two-month delay, that takes EV deliveries into January 2021. Production of the 2021 Bronco is likely in that October/November window as well.

This came up in our global team huddle.

The plants were temporarily closed for cleaning when the employee COVID test came back positive. The employees involved were exposed to the virus outside of work and did not have any symptoms that the return to work screening (self attestation and temp screening) would have picked up. In one case the employees' spouse is a medical worker and the employee was exposed that way.

The return to work procedures have since been updated so that if the employee has a pending COVID test then they are directed not report to work that day. That should help mitigate the risk.

Thank you for the update. Your inside perspective has been quite helpful on many topics.

Recontamination and cross-exposure off workers was going to happen. Glad Ford was able to handle it well and is adjusting its procedures as they learn.
