DENSO in North America
This week, 33 positive COVID-19 diagnoses were reported at DENSO affiliates in North America. This brings our total reported positive diagnoses to 3,073 across Canada, Mexico and the United States.
Overall case rates continue to flatten, although we are closely monitoring the spread of COVID variants due to travel and other loosening restrictions. Please continue to seek out vaccination opportunities, wear a mask over your nose and mouth, keep social distance and avoid large, indoor gatherings.

COVID-19 Vaccine: Will DENSO change its policies for vaccinated associates?
DENSO will continue to follow CDC guidelines for protecting our associates, but there will be a delay between CDC updates and DENSO policy changes. For example, the CDC released guiding principles for people who have been fully vaccinated this week. These changes do not immediately affect individual employers, but several policy changes are under review. Associates should continue to follow existing DENSO Risk Minimization guidelines until notified otherwise.
Let’s Learn Together: Do DENSO safety guidelines change when local/state government restrictions do?
As vaccination rates increase, some state and local government orders may change policies in your community, but DENSO sets its own company safety policies to protect associates at work. DENSO policies for masking, cleaning and social distancing will continue to follow CDC guidelines. We must remain committed to protecting ourselves and each other. COVID-19 safety policies, including face masks, are required at all DENSO North America sites. We recommend that you follow all best practices for COVID safety in the community, and strongly encourage you to get vaccinated at your first opportunity.
