Not subby, but I would guess that it was needed to announce at all.

The company told 600,000 employees that they can work from home if they can do their jobs there, won't count any corona-related sick days against their annual days off banks, halted non-essential travel to protect employees, and have implemented sanitation steps.

If this got the "sad" tag because it's sad that a company this size has to do this in response to an outbreak, then I agree.  It looks like Amazon is doing what they can to protect their people though.

They make $3/hr but they'll have to provide proof of the illness from a doctor, which will run them around $3000.
