WeWork has revealed it will keep most of its spaces open during the COVID-19 pandemic, despite other coworking operators opting to close their doors.
Currently, the company has 739 locations around the world and has shut down two of them in Wuhan, China, where the virus originated. It has also shut down and reopened locations in Seattle and New York after occupants of their spaces tested positive for the virus.
Some companies have been more vigilant about closing, such as The Wing, who closed all their locations on Saturday through at least March 31. Convene’s is closing over half of its 32 locations.
WeWork has an optional work-from-home policy for its employees and has suspended events and reduced the number of staffers at its locations.
