Honda released a statement on Wednesday morning saying it’s closing all of its automotive production plants in North America for six days due to an “anticipated” drop in demand. The shut-sown will reduce vehicle output by about 40,000.

Honda says it will pay all 27,000 workers across the closed facilities during the shutdown.

After an autoworker employed at Fiat-Chrysler's Sterling Heights Assembly plant in MI tested positive for coronavirus, FCA has closed the plant for workers safety.
