Rivian, the buzzy electric vehicle startup that is backed by Amazon and Ford, is shutting down all of its facilities due to the spread of COVID-19, the disease caused by coronavirus.
Rivian told TechCrunch that most of its facilities have been at 2 to 5% occupancy for about a week.
Update: To keep our teams safe and slow the spread of COVID-19, we have shut down all Rivian facilities.
