Nissan has said its Japanese operations have implemented a number of measures to prevent the spread of COVID-19, including precautionary guidelines and remote working.

The company said that in line with the measures announced by the Japanese government, the below actions will come into effect:

  • Office workers will be required to work from home, with the exception of work required onsite for business continuity. The number of employees onsite will be minimised, and when working onsite, employees are 'recommended to avoid public transportation as much as possible, follow the precautionary guidelines outlined by the company and maintain social distance'.
  • Each production site will continue to operate to address market demand and will closely manage the safety and health of plant employees.
  • Nissan dealers in Japan will provide necessary customer support ensuring safety and peace of mind to customers. While dealers may scale down certain activities, they will 'ensure other means to provide onsite dealer service, vehicle and parts logistics and customer call centres to meet the needs of customers'.
