SPRINGFIELD, Tenn. (WKRN) — The Electrolux factory in Springfield closed once again Thursday following additional COVID-19 cases. 

Company officials said they confirmed two positive COVID-19 cases Wednesday night. The company also closed earlier this month due to a COIVD-19 case. 

Electrolux said it took immediate action and closed the factory. During the closure, they used crews to fog, sanitize and disinfect the building. On top of that, the company has implemented temperature scans, protective barriers and increased janitorial cleaning, among other things. 

The manufacturing facility planned to resume normal operations Friday.
