Facebook is "strongly" recommending that all of its Bay Area employees work remotely as fears grow around the coronavirus outbreak.
In a statement sent late Thursday, a Facebook spokesperson told Business Insider: "Based on guidance from Santa Clara County today, we are strongly recommending that all Bay Area employees and contingent staff work from home starting tomorrow, Friday, March 6th. This decision is based on our desire to minimize the risk of spreading COVID-19. The health and safety of our teams, their loved ones and our neighbors remain a top priority."
COVID-19, the disease caused by the coronavirus, has sickened nearly 98,000 people and killed more than 3,300, and is causing mounting disruption around the globe — disrupting supply chains and forcing the closure of major events.
