Sadly, the coronavirus pandemic has not gotten any better. Nintendo has been monitoring the situation very closely. Washington state, which is the location of Nintendo of America’s headquaters, has been hit hard by the pandemic. And, unfortunately, there has been some more bad news reported tonight. Nintendo has confimed to the Seattle Times that a Nintendo of America employee has tested positive for the virus, and that there were other Nintendo workers that have had contact with them as well.
Nintendo sent a statement saying that all of the Nintendo employees who were in contact with the one that tested positive are now “in self-quarantine, whether they have symptoms or not”. Nintendo also says that they are “supporting this individual as they recover and will continue to take precautions to safeguard the health and well-being of all our employees and the broader community”. For now, Nintendo is letting all of their employees in Washington state and California to work from home.
