Avast makes modifications to our business in response to the coronavirus outbreak
Updated, Saturday March 14
We have been closely monitoring the COVID-19 situation and noted the preventative measures being implemented globally in the last 48 hours. We have made the decision to close all Avast offices worldwide as a preventative measure to protect our employees, their families and communities, which will take effect from Monday, March 16. As a leading technology provider, Avast has ensured employees are fully equipped to work from home, and our products and services to our valued users remain unaffected.
We are asking employees to seek appropriate medical attention according to local guidelines. We continue to monitor the situation in real time and will take the appropriate steps to ensure our employees are protected.
