"we would like our customers and business partners who have traveled to China to refrain from entering any Sony’s office areas for the next 14 days after the immigration into Japan. In addition, when we meet with any customers or business partners, regardless of where we meet, please allow us to make sure whether those people have visited China within the last 14 days," says Sony.

Smartsens reports that "as of now, there is no infected or suspected of being infected employees of Smartsens. "On the supply side product, Smartsens still provides normal supply. However, due to strict logistics control in many places due to epidemic prevention needs, the timeliness of product logistics may be affected to a certain extent.

At the same time, in order to reduce the concentration of personnel and prevent the epidemic from spreading further, we will appropriately adjust the arrangements for corporate offline market activities and participation in third-party offline market activities in the first half of 2020.
