In response to the spread of COVID-19, Winnebago Industries announced today that it will suspend work at its factories, the Des Moines Register reported. Based in Forest City, the recreational vehicle manufacturer said it expects the suspension to begin this week and run through April 12. The company said in a news release that it will keep certain business operations running, such as technical support, warranty administration and parts fulfillment. The company will also continue to work with retailers and customers, and it will provide support to mobile health clinics. The majority of Winnebago’s 2,000 employees work in factory positions; it operates Iowa plants in Forest City, Charles City, Lake Mills and Waverly. The company said it will provide base pay and insurance for two weeks of the expected three-week shutdown. On Friday, Bridgestone suspended operations at its Des Moines agricultural tire plant as part of a nationwide shutdown, idling 1,400 Iowa workers.
