Coronavirus shuts Cognizant

In order to stay safe from the spread of Coronavirus, American multinational corporation and IT services provider Cognizant India has shut down its corporate office at Hyderabad. The company has asked its employees to stay at home and work from home to remain safe from this deadly virus.

The IT Services provider sent out emails to its employees stating that it is shutting its office at Building 20 of Raheja Mindspace in Hyderabad due to the above-mentioned reason and informed that the office premises are being disinfected and sanitised.

As a matter of abundant caution, we are closing our office in Building 20, Raheja Mindspace for disinfection and sanitisation". Cognizant has also reported that no employee of the company is known to have contracted the virus so far.
