On July 20, DMMI confirmed an evaporator auto-braze associate tested positive for COVID-19. The health department case investigation determined community spread through family who had tested positive.
The individual was last on campus on Wednesday, July 15. We followed our safety protocols and completed Category 2 cleaning after the associate reported testing. This includes wiping of equipment and production area surfaces with EPA-registered biocide. Upon notification of the positive diagnosis, fogging and wiping of surfaces and equipment by a professionally certified cleaning crew was conducted.
Please join us in wishing for this associate’s quick recovery. We ask that you respect confidentiality, even if you believe you know who this individual is.
This brings the total number of DMMI associates who have tested positive for COVID-19 to 16 since March.
Please keep yourself and those you care about safe from infection by practicing safety first inside and outside of work. Continue frequent hand washing. Keep a safe distance between you and others. Wear a mask around people you do not live with. Following these guidelines will help prevent further spread.

DENSO has cleaning and disinfecting processes in place, especially for common touch points, like break areas and cafeterias.
We have three levels of cleaning depending on the situation:
* Per CDC guidelines, if an associate receives a positive diagnosis after being out of the workplace for more than seven days, there is no need for Category 3 cleaning.
