We're working for you with our Problem Solvers Coronavirus Hotline.

2 Works for You's Travis Guillory has been sifting through your calls to get the answers you need.

A big bulk of the calls he has been getting is about why certain business are open and others are not.

Why is one business closing and sending all of their employees home, but another is still open at full capacity with all employees still there?

"I was calling regarding Navistar International, also known as the bus plant on North Mingo. And there are like 1,500 employees working there."

"I have a fiancé that's working at the bus plant of about 1,500 people, maybe more. They're kind of just all working basically on top of each other; they're all next to each other."

So, I reached out to Navistar to find out why they're not adhereing to Gov. Stitt's Executive Order of 10 people or less.

Their corporate office said, "The Navistar Inc. Bus Manufacturing Plant in Tulsa is continuing regular manufacturing operations at this time. The facility is covered under the Department of
Homeland Security's list of Critical Manufacturing and exempt from Governor Kevin Stitt's Executive Order. To protect its employees, the plant is closely following the CDC's recommendations for increased cleaning and social distancing."

So if there are questions that you have in regards to the coronavirus, give us a call at 2 Works for You's Problem Solvers Coronavirus Hotline at 918-748-1502.
