Apple Asks Employees in U.S. To Work From Home Amidst Coronavirus Outbreak

Apple has restricted its employees from travelling to Italy and South Korea

Apple has reportedly suggested to its employees on the California campuses to work from home as an “extra precaution” eve as new coronavirus cases spread on the west coast in the US, especially Seattle area.

As Apple has not made a public statement regarding the move, it’s not clear how many employees have been asked to work from home, Apple Insider reported on Saturday.

The company joins Microsoft, Google Facebook, and Twitter in requesting their employees to work from home.

Apple’s flagship developers’ conference WWDC 2020 in June is also at the risk of getting cancelled as the Santa Clara public health department has warned against large public gatherings. The event draws nearly 5,000 developers from across the world.
