Altria suspends operations at manufacturing facility in Richmond

March 19 (Reuters) - U.S. Marlboro maker Altria Group Inc said on Thursday it is temporarily suspending operations at Philip Morris USA’s manufacturing facility at Richmond, as a second employee had tested positive for the coronavirus.

The company said it expects the manufacturing center to suspend operations for the next two weeks as Philip Morris USA will continue to monitor the “evolving situation”. (Reporting by Manojna Maddipatla in Bengaluru; Editing by Maju Samuel)
