coronavirus Updates for GM Employees | General Motors

Our Employees


Our employees are the foundation of our business, and without them, we know that little can be accomplished. In March, we closed most of our North American facilities to protect the health and safety of our people and communities. During that time, many rose to the challenge to help build ventilators, face masks, face shields, gowns and other personal protection equipment for essential workers.

Our North American manufacturing employees returned to work in May, and we continue to prioritize the health and safety of our teams and their families throughout the world. From manufacturing facilities to corporate offices, there is no GM employee left behind in this fight against COVID-19.

Something that won’t change as we embrace the new "abnormal" is our focus on our employees:

  • As some employees begin to return to facilities, we are taking measures at our workplaces in order to protect our employees

  • We have extensive procedures to help keep employees safe when they arrive, while they work and when they leave the facilities.

  • When employees arrive to work, they will maintain a physical distance of six feet from other people, sanitize their hands, wear a provided face mask, answer a simple COVID-19 questionnaire and have their temperature screened.

  • In addition, employees in manufacturing, warehouse and lab facilities will wear safety glasses.

  • We will monitor the situation, adapt accordingly and make any changes to policy in accordance with scientific data and guidance from national and international health organizations.

  • We are committed to doing everything we can to protect our employees, their families and the community.
