Even vendors and guests are being granted entry into the premises after thermal screening.

Employees across plants, regional offices are being advised to extensively use teleconferencing and video conference facilities. Besides, we are limiting the entry of guests and visitors in office. We are requesting visitors to share travel history as well”, said a spokesperson at Maruti Suzuki.In order to maintain an uncontaminated environment at the workplace, Toyota said it has suspended the fingerprint biometric attendance system as a preventive measure. Employees are also being encouraged to maintain social distancing, avoid touching eyes, nose and mouth, practice respiratory hygiene, wash hands more often and stay at home if they see any COVID-19 symptoms.
