Tesla CEO Elon Musk said on Twitter Saturday that the company is preparing to file a lawsuit against Alameda County, and will move its headquarters and future operations out of California.
On Friday, Alameda County’s interim public health officer, Dr. Erica Pan, said that health orders to contain a Covid-19 outbreak in the region are still in place, and that Tesla does not have a “green light,” to resume vehicle production at its main U.S. car plant in Fremont, California yet.
Tesla had wanted to resume production on Friday afternoon. The plant is where the company makes vehicles for Europe and North America.
