More than 1,800 employees and contractors returned to Volkswagen's Chattanooga plant on Monday after a nearly two month shutdown due to the coronavirus. 

According to VW, instead of arriving at the plant entrance through turnstiles as in the past, each person started the day at the Volkswagen Conference Center.

Workers clocked in using their mobile devices, the company said.

Each employee also received a new mask, which is now part of the company's team wear, and gloves were available for those who wished to wear them, according to VW. 

Before entering the factory, all workers had their temperature checked by trained personnel using clinical-grade, touch-free scanners.

The company said workers spent most of the day reviewing new health and safety measures which were put into place during the past several weeks of production suspension. The measures are based on CDC guidelines and the Tennessee Pledge, according to the automaker.
