"Since the start of the Covid-19 pandemic, the ministry of Health and car manufacturers have closely worked together to safeguard the health of employees and ensure the sustainability of their businesses," said the department in a release.

While production was halted, a set of health measures and protocols were deployed and reinforced at all the production sites in Morocco (Renault Tangier, Somaca Casablanca and PSA Kenitra sites).
