Sadly, the coronavirus epidemic didn't get better. Nintendo paid close attention to the situation. The state of Washington, the site of the so-called Nintendo of the USAquakers, has been hit hard by the disease. And, unfortunately, there have been some very bad news reported tonight. Nintendo told the Seattle Times that a Nintendo of America employee had been diagnosed with the virus and that some Nintendo employees had contacted him.
Nintendo posted a statement saying that all Nintendo employees who came in contact with the HIV-positive patient were now “independent, whether they had symptoms or not”. Nintendo also said that they "support the person as they recover and will continue to take safety measures to protect the health of all our employees and the wider community". In the meantime, Nintendo is letting all their employees in Washington state and California work from home.
