Tesla Inc. may be forced to rethink plans to call workers back to its lone U.S. vehicle-assembly plant as San Francisco Bay area counties plan to extend their shelter-in-place orders through next month.

The health officer of Alameda County -- where Tesla’s Fremont, California, factory is located -- and six of her peers in nearby areas said in a statement Monday they will issue revised orders later this week that largely keep current restrictions in place. The orders had been set to expire on May 3.
