After following the global situation with the coronavirus and with the recent climbing of cases in new regions, we decided to take additional measures to protect the well-being of our employees, including the restriction of all Non-essential trips. As a result, we also annul our official participation in GDC and limit participation in other events. We continue to monitor the situation and adapt guidelines to our employees if we deem appropriate. »
