Update on TRI and Tesla

Our EOC team and I communicate regularly with TRIC companies and with Tesla. 

Tesla has informed us that the Gigafactory in Storey County is reducing on-site staff by roughly 75% in the coming days. Our companies at TRIC are taking the COVID-19 matter seriously, and regularly report to us the measures they are taking to adhere to the established guidelines while maintaining essential operations. Checking employee temperatures, creating central access, allowing remote work, maintaining workstation distance, and others are occurring. 

Our grocery stores and doorsteps receive much of our food, sundries, and supplies from our TRIC companies, and we are glad they a part of our community and the vital supply chain for many others outside Nevada. We are also grateful for the measures they are taking to keep our local communities safe. 

We will continue to update you on changes that occur at TRIC and elsewhere. 

Thank you, County Manager Austin Osborne
