Apple moves employees to remote mode

Tim Cook, Apple's CEO, recommended that employees at Apple Park and Infinite Loop in Cupertino switch to remote mode due to a coronavirus outbreak.

It is proposed to work remotely from March 9 to 13. This applies to branches in regions that are prone to infection above others: Santa Clara, Grove, as well as branches in the UK, Germany, Italy, France, Switzerland, South Korea and Japan.

Also, the letter that the employees received indicated that the company would “maximize interpersonal space,” that is, reduce the number of people in the workplace. Fewer people – less risk of infection.

As we said last week, Santa Clara County authorities in California have published recommendations to combat the spread of coronavirus for residents and companies. List of recommendations:

If possible, transfer employees to remote work;
Do not require sick leave, as medical facilities are overloaded and require more time than usual;
Limit the appearance of sick employees in offices, as well as increase sickness benefits;
Increase the distance between jobs;
If possible, cancel large meetings and conferences;
Cancel non-essential trips.

We can say that Apple has listened to the recommendations of the authorities and that every day it is becoming more obvious that it will not hold a spring presentation and WWDC conference for developers.

New devices will simply appear on the site, as it happens quite often (last year AirPods 2 / AirPods Pro, iPad Air 3 / iPad mini 5, as well as MacBook Pro 16 were presented this way), and a conference for developers will be held online, how it is going to be done Google with an I / O conference.
