SHANGHAI, March 29 (Reuters) – Auto parts maker Aptiv (APTV.N) on Tuesday sent home workers at a Shanghai production facility that supplies Tesla and a General Motors (GM) joint venture, citing COVID issues, sources familiar with the matter told Reuters.

A spokesperson for Aptiv declined to comment on the production halt but said the company was following government orders and customers’ production would not be impacted.

Aptiv has a number of production sites in Shanghai’s Jiading district in the western part of the city. The district has not been affected so far by the city’s two-stage COVID-19 lockdown, which started in the east on Monday.

Four sources said workers at one of the sites, which makes wire harnesses, were abruptly told to head home on Tuesday. They declined to be named as the information was not public.

The affected workers were told to stay home on Wednesday and await a further notice, the sources added.

Customers of the plant include Tesla (TSLA.O) and GM’s (GM.N) Shanghai joint venture with SAIC Motor Corp (600104.SS), two of the sources said.
