Because of coronavirus (COVID-19), it’s been a rough year for most businesses and the auto industry is doing its best to recover.
On Monday evening, General Motors CEO Mary Barra did an expansive “fireside chat” with the Automotive Press Association.
Barra said she expects the auto industry to take a big sales hit. Roughly three million units won’t get built and sold compared to last year. That’s going to add up industry-wide to billions of dollars. But that doesn’t mean things are bleak -- despite shareholder concerns, Barra remains upbeat.
Michigan's health department on Monday mandated coronavirus testing of all nursing home residents and staff after reporting the deaths of nearly 2,000 residents tied to the facilities — about a third of all COVID-19 deaths across the state.
Director Robert Gordon’s order requires initial universal testing. Also, all new or returning residents have to be tested, and there must be weekly testing of all residents and staff in a home with any cases until 14 days after the last positive result.
