Boeing to resume limited Pacific Northwest operations

After temporarily closing factories in the Pacific Northwest due to the coronavirus, aircraft maker Boeing announced it would resume operations in some Puget Sound sites on Monday.

“The resumption of operations will focus on our defense programs, including P-8 and KC-46, and Moses Lake site operations in support of 737 MAX storage,” according to a statement from Boeing.
“Other essential labs and support teams will also resume to support critical customer needs.”

Factories producing commercial aircraft will not reopen Monday, a Boeing spokesman told CNN.

Boeing says about 2,500 employees in the region will be returning to work, with all required to wear face coverings. Of more than 70,000 Boeing employees who work in the Puget Sound area, about 100 have been confirmed with coronavirus.
