As Americans, we have the great ability to adjust to issues that are presented to us; especially in times of need. When we have been faced with a war, we buckle down and do what we have to in order to bring home our family and friends quickly and safely. The same can be said for the current pandemic we’ve all been experiencing. Now, a pandemic is not the same as a war (for obvious reasons), but our capability to produce the supplies necessary to help us overcome a national crisis still has the same application.

Since the start of our national shutdown, along with other international shutdowns occurring all over the world, hundreds of thousands of people have gathered together to help make essential items to help combat the severity of the pandemic. Companies including GM, Givenchy, Dior, Amazon, and many more have paused their traditional production in an effort to focus on producing products that are needed on the frontlines. These products include hand sanitizer, N95 masks, ventilators, protective gowns, and several others.

Throughout the past few weeks, GM has been working nonstop to transform their warehouses into safe and reliable areas to build VOCSN critical care ventilators. Additionally, within less than a week GM began transforming their team members into experts who are now able to produce Level 1 surgical masks. GM is proud to have been able to work quickly and safely to produce supplies and products that protect healthcare teams working day in and day out to save lives and preserve our communities. All supplies currently being produced by GM facilities are being donated, and face mask production is projected to reach 50,000 face masks per week, along with other equipment.

We are proud to be a part of a company that is contributing to the battle against the coronavirus. Amongst all the other companies that have stepped up to the plate during this uncertain period of time, it’s been inspiring to watch teams of people from all over the world work together to accomplish the seemingly impossible.

From all of us at Chevrolet, we thank those who are continuously putting themselves on the front lines to help tend to our loved ones. We thank those who are spending their time making the necessary equipment needed to protect and preserve the lives of those at risk. And we thank you, for reminding us how uplifting even the toughest of times can be, because we’re all working together towards the same goal of health and safety for one another.
