The deadly outbreak of coronavirus has forced WeWork to temporarily close its 100 sites in China.
“We’re monitoring [the buildings] and working with the Chinese government to make sure we’re following the proper guidelines,” said Marcelo Claure, WeWork Executive Chairman, who discussed the closings during a recent interview with CNBC.
According to Claure, no members have been infected with the disease. But WeWork is encouraging members to work at home or in other private settings in order to restrict the spread of the disease.
Coronavirus was first reported from Wuhan, China, on 31 December 2019. On Monday, publicly reported deaths eclipsed 1,000.
