LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) — Subaru of Indiana Automotive will extend its previously announced week-long closure. According to the company, the temporary shutdown will now last through Monday, April 6 to coincide with Gov. Holcomb's 'stay at home' order due to the COVID-19 spread.

According to a memo, all associates will continue to get full pay through Friday, April 3. On April 6, SIA will pull forward the previously scheduled company paid day of Dec. 28. The company says when associates return to work, they will have the option to use or reschedule any paid time off or vacation to cover Dec. 28, or can take that day unpaid. 

The plant has been closed since Monday.

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.
