Rivian has apparently opened up its factory, according to a new report from Inside EVs.

Out of Rivian's 335 employees in the Normal Illinois area, 116 of them are on site. Rivian has instituted a "4-phase plan" to keep those who can work from home. In order to work at the plan workers have to wear PPE and pass temperature checks.


We're happy to report that the company has begun the process of restarting its operations. While renovation work at its factory in Normal, Illinois had halted, other engineering and development work continued apace.

Though allowed to open without any restrictions, the company appears to be making worker safety a priority. According to a spokesperson, Rivian has instituted "a 4-phase plan to keep everyone who can work remotely at home."

The daily number of workers on-site will be controlled. Personal protective equipment (PPE), along with temperature checks, will be required to work at the plant. Rivian employees who are not comfortable with the risks are encouraged to stay home. And, unlike most companies, this won't mean forcing workers to make a choice between risking infection and putting food on the table. All Rivian employees continue to receive their full compensation.

The company even went out of its way to supply us with the numbers of workers involved at its Normal factory, which is being expanded from 2.6 million to 3 million square feet. Of the 335 Rivian employees it has in the area, 116 of them are on-site.

Besides these people, it also has a number of sub-contractors fulfilling their roles. Of those, 109 workers are doing work inside the massive structure, while between 120 and 140 people are toiling outside.

So good to hear that Rivian is pulling things together and starting to make production development happen. Perhaps in July they will begin that vehicle design and order process that was mentioned some months ago.
