US media outlet CNN is closing its offices for all non-essential or non-essential workers in the United States. CNN confirmed on Saturday that the move was prompted by a recent rise in corona infections in the United States.
The directive was issued on Saturday in an internal memo written to staff, according to a Reuters report.
CNN is part of AT&T Inc.’s (TN) Warner Media division. The memo said that the office will be closed for all employees who do not work in the office. It is mentioned that they do not have to come to the office as long as there is this ban.
“We’re taking this as a precautionary measure,” CNN President Jeff Zucker said in the memo. He also mentioned that this reduction in the number of people will protect those who will now work in the office.
He added that those who need to come to the office should wear full-time masks. CNN has also made some changes to their studios and control rooms to reduce the presence of people.
A report in the Wall Street Journal first reported that CNN was closing offices for its redundant staff. However, there is a possibility that CNN employees will be able to return to the office at any time in January. However, a source close to the matter could not be reached for comment.
