    • The iPhone manufacturer said Shenzhen factories will resume work while keeping employees confined to company campuses
    • Foxconn suspended operations on Monday, when Shenzhen initiated a citywide lockdown to fight its worst Covid outbreak in two years

    Apple supplier Foxconn Technology Group said its Shenzhen factories have restarted some production and operations under “closed-loop” management, which keeps all employees living and working on company campuses.

    The resumption of business, following a two-day suspension amid a citywide lockdown, was only allowed on campuses that have both employee housing and production facilities, according to a statement on Wednesday from Foxconn, also known as Hon Hai Technology Group. The company said it has implemented the required health measures for the employees who live on campus.

    The partial resumption of production at Foxconn’s two major Shenzhen campuses, located in Longhua and Guanlan districts, started on Wednesday, according to a Foxconn spokesman.

    “This process … adheres to strict industry guidelines and closed-loop management policies issued by the Shenzhen government,” Foxconn said. “The company will continue to work closely with the relevant authorities in monitoring these operations very closely.”
