Airbus, which paused production in France and Spain last Tuesday, said it would resume partial production on Monday.

The company had to temporarily suspend work at its factories in order to ensure the factories would comply with new governmental restrictions.

The aircraft manufacturer implemented “new health and safety measures in terms of hygiene, cleaning, and self-distancing” it said in a statement.

An Airbus employee tested positive for the novel coronavirus at its Madrid plant on March 12. Workers there who had been in contact with that employee were asked to self-quarantine for 14 days.

In addition, a Boeing employee at that company’s plant in Everett, Washington, tested positive on March 9 and the company took similar precautiosn there.
