GM Reinstates Mask Mandate In Certain Michigan Facilities32
GM has reinstated mask mandates for employees at certain facilities in southeastern Michigan due to rising COVID-19 cases in the area.
According to Reuters, mask mandates have been put back in place at GM facilities in the Michigan counties of Oakland, Wayne, Livingston and Macomb. This includes the GM Factory Zero plant in Detroit-Hamtramck, as well as the GM Orion plant in Lake Orion and GM Romulus plant, among others.
GM and the UAW dropped their mask mandate for all individuals regardless of vaccination status in March, but reserved the right to reinstate the mandate in high-risk areas. Six southeastern Michigan counties have been determined to have high levels of COVID-19 at the moment, including Wayne, Oakland, Livingston Macomb and Washtenaw.
UAW members do not need to be vaccinated against COVID-19, although the union has encouraged vaccination among its members in the past.
“The Task Force continues to encourage everyone to roll up their sleeve and get vaccinated against COVID-19 so that we can protect our sisters and brothers and their families,” the union said last summer.
The UAW said over the weekend that facilities located in high-risk counties as identified by the CDC will require both masking and physical distancing guidelines to be put in place. This would mean GM facilities in these areas would also need to implement physical distancing measures in addition to facemask requirements in order to adhere to safety protocol.
“Since the early days of the pandemic, our COVID-19 Joint Task Force (which includes UAW, Ford, General Motors and Stellantis) has met to regularly discuss COVID-19 protocols and procedures,” UAW spokeswoman Sandra Engle said in a statement provided to The Detroit News. “If a facility is located in high-risk counties as identified by the CDC, they will require masking and physical distancing. Current changes to masking rules at some locations are a result of this policy.”
GM’s production output is not expected to be impacted by the rising COVID-19 case levels in Michigan for the time being.

Here we go again. Guess people will never learn once you give up your freedoms they will continue stripping you of them.
Insanity- Doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different result.
How stupid! Just say no!
Employees need to band together and say no.
Do you mean like a union?
If it didn’t work before it ain’t gonna work this time.

Get a life people.
Complaining? No. Refusing is the correct word.
Triple mask in the shower if you want to.

1) Wearing masks out in the middle of nowhere or sitting by themselves in a vehicle
2) Authorities getting rich while the peasants get poorer and poorer from outlandish inflation
3) Disinformation, hypodermic needles, illegals, drug trafficking and non stop lying and blame shifting!
Get a life people.
Not to mention, write a 180 page communist manifesto, drive 2 hours to Buffalo NY because in you manifesto you point out “they have the strictest gun laws so they can’t stop me” then shoot up 10 people in a grocery store. Maybe it would be more affective to wear tin foil hats instead of masks, cause disillusion and mental illness are becoming more deadly than Covid ever was
Right wing fascist kill people that don’t look like them. Believing they’re the master race, they want to keep the gene pool pure.
Do your research. Payton Gendron explicitly states he’s is ex-communist, and is currently a proud socialist who’s sole purpose for the attack is to bring about gun control. Right wingers don’t promote violence, and never have. That’s why the Gretchen Whitmer kidnappers were let go, because they were found to have been in an entrapment scheme by the FBI and why Jan 6 was a bunch of selfie taking grandmas and Hobbos who happened to be there, and why pelosie won’t release the camera data from the most heavily secured building in America despite “wanting to get to the bottom of it all”, because antifa, the left wingers in the FBI are behind that violence as well.
if people want to play covid roulette, let them.
@ Peter G
Get out of here you little weasel!
You must be using the username Matt also. As I told you the other day save the homo crap for your husband.
Sorry, not falling for that one again! Just say no people! Stand up!
Rubber masks for P.G. and Faucci,they will never get the virus gauronteed
Over the last two years, I have spent less than five hours wearing a mask. I only wore one when I absolutely had to. I had two mild cases of Covid. No big deal but I’m not obese either. If your vaccine and mask worked. You wouldn’t worry about anyone else.
If your boss told you to wear it you can do it or hit the bricks.
Libtards at work again🤦♂️🤦♂️.
Look, if someone wants to wear a mask, let them…wear a whole hazmat suit for all I care. In the case of Joy Behar and Whoopi Goldberg, they should double mask by wearing a paper bag over their head, but that is another conversation for a different time. But, the time for mask mandates has long passed. People know the COVID risks and should be educated enough to make their own risk assessments and mitigation efforts.
Can anybody say “mid-term elections” coming?
The only place I wear a mask is in a medical facility.
How does the song go? “We won’t be fooled again”!
Yup, here comes the midterms!
The party of Jim Crow is the democrats the party of the kkk is the democrats, that’s not a conspiracy it’s a fact.
