LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) — Subaru of Indiana Automotive has announced a second postponement of its originally scheduled plant shutdown. SIA has now extended its temporary closure through April 17, according to a memo obtained by News 18.

Production at all Subaru manufacturing facilities in Japan and the United States will be stopped due to COVID-19. 

All associates will continue to receive full pay through Friday, April 10, according to the memo. As previously reported, a company paid day on Dec. 28 will be pulled forward to cover April 6 pay. To cover April 7-9, SIA will pull forward three remaining company paid days of June 29, July 10 and December 23. April 10, Good Friday, will remain a paid holiday. 

Last Wednesday, the company extended what was supposed to be just a week-long closure through April 6. The factory was originally going to close March 23-29. 

More than 6,000 employees work at the Lafayette manufacturing plant, the only one outside of Asia. The Ascent, Impreza, Legacy and Outback are all produced at the facility off State Road 38.
