CNN Closing Offices in Response to COVID-19 Surge

Coronavirus cases are surging in some parts of the country, leading to various states, counties, and companies implementing their COVID-19 mandates. For CNN, the news media outlet has decided to close its offices to those who don’t need to work in person.  

The Hill revealed a memo shared by CNN President Jeff Zucker, who stated the action was being made “out of an abundance of caution.”

Furthermore, the note added that the conclusion to scale back in-person work “will also protect those who will be in the office by minimizing the number of people who are there.”

When it comes to the employees who have to be at the office, they will be required to wear masks at all times unless they are eating, drinking, or in a room by themselves. 

“We will also be making some changes to studios and control rooms we are using to help minimize the number of people in our spaces,” Zucker said. 

“Show teams will hear more about this from their managers. Our newsgathering teams will be re-evaluating assignments and adjusting travel accordingly.”

The policy will stay in effect “until further notice,” the CNN President said.
