Hasbro offices worldwide, including its Rhode Island office, will be closed at least until April 1st due to COVID-19 Pandemic.
“At this time, no Hasbro employees have tested positive for COVID-19,” company spokeswoman Julie Duffy said in an email to The Providence Journal 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.”
Providence Journal also mentions that Hasbro did not disclose any work-from-home strategies unlike other offices in the area.
We currently do not know of any contingency or mitigation plans from Hasbro, but it is likely that the toy business will be affected negatively to some extent.
