Amazon is trying to keep its workers from traveling amid mounting global concerns about the novel coronavirus.
"We're asking employees to defer non-essential travel during this time,” the company confirmed in a statement to CNN.
The statement follows a statement from Amazon’s cloud computing arm, Amazon Web Services, which said it will not be attending a major conference for video game developers in San Francisco.
"While we won’t get to see everyone at GDC this year, we still have exciting things to share,” the company said in an online post. "AWS Game Tech has decided to host a global online event, open to everyone, to showcase our planned content for GDC and more."
