Hyundai Motor Group stopped operations of its Ulsan manufacturing plant’s second factory Friday after an employee who works there was confirmed with COVID-19.
According to the automaker, the factory has suspended operations since 11:30 a.m. Friday. The worker was confirmed to be infected that morning.
The company said it has disinfected the site and put five co-workers into self-isolation.
A Hyundai Motor employee said the duration of the shutdown will be decided later based on the disease control center’s guidelines.
