Hasbro closes offices worldwide due to coronavirus threat; other employers begin work-from-home

While toy and entertainment giant Hasbro is closing its offices in reaction to the coronavirus pandemic, other large employers in Rhode Island have instituted work-from-home for their employees.

Company spokeswoman Julie Duffy says Hasbro’s offices will be closed around the world until April 1 to protect employees from the coronavirus, which causes the disease COVID-19.

"At this time, no Hasbro employees have tested positive for COVID-19," Duffy said in an email to The Providence Journal on Friday. "We have made this decision in an abundance of caution and in the best interest of our employees and the communities in which we operate."
