Sony Coronavirus

Reports are coming in that Sony has closed three of its European offices due to concerns over the coronavirus. Offices in London (UK), Paris (France), and Gdynia (Poland) have been shuttered for the rest of the week as a precautionary measure.

Sony says that none of its employees have tested positive for the coronavirus, but it's still taking action after one member of staff travelled to a region where the virus is a known threat. According to TBI, an internal memo reads: "Out of an abundance of caution, the London, Paris and Gdynia offices will be closed for the remainder of the week, and employees should work from home".

The BBC reports that the affected offices fall under Sony Pictures Entertainment, so at the time of writing, this has little to do with PlayStation. We'll be sure to update this story if we hear more.
