DMMI Associate Tests Positive for COVID-19
On Tuesday, May 26, DENSO was notified that an associate in multi-cooler braze tested positive for COVID-19. The individual was last on the DENSO Manufacturing Michigan campus on Friday, May 22 during second shift.
We have thoroughly cleaned the facility per DENSO’s Safety Policy, including shutting down the manufacturing area for third-party disinfection. All areas the associate had prolonged contact with have been professionally sanitized.
We consulted with the Calhoun County Health Department and our medical professionals and ensured proper notifications were completed. Because of DENSO standards for physical barriers and wearing face coverings, other associates are not considered to have been in close contact with the diagnosed person at work. This means the Health Department has not recommended that any associates isolate. We do ask that associates continue to closely monitor their personal health at home and follow screening procedures before entering the facility.
Please respect confidentiality, even if you believe you know who this individual is. The person is in quarantine at home; join us in wishing for their quick recovery.
