Nissan is going to furlough around 10,000 workers from its USA factories in MS and Tennessee, which remain closed due to the coronavirus pandemic. A Honda spokesman said it employs 18,400 workers across its plants in Alabama, Indiana and OH, and would guarantee salaries through Sunday (April 12, 2020).

The automaker had suspended operations on March 23, and the factories would remain closed until May 1, 2020.

Nissan spokeswoman Lloryn Love-Carter said the company plans to furlough about 10,000 workers at plants in MS and Tennessee.

Operations at Honda's Powersports plant in SC, which makes all-terrain vehicles (ATVs), have been suspended since March 26. Fiat Chrysler on Monday extended its shutdown of United States and Canadian plants until May 4.

Toyota has halted its U.S. and Canadian production through April 17.

The Japanese automaker is asking furloughed employees to apply for unemployment through at least April 27, when Nissan is planning to restart production.
