The controlled shutdown at Yokohama Tire Manufacturing Mississippi (YTMM) is in response to the impact of the global COVID-19 pandemic and is expected to last for a period of two weeks.

In addition, the plant is taking sterilization and decontamination measures to ensure the health and safety of all personnel upon their return.

Preventative measures to stem the spread of COVID-19 are in effect at all company facilities, the company added.
