COVID-19 (코로나 바이러스) 발생이 발전함에 따라 직원과 커뮤니티의 건강과 안전이 최우선 과제입니다. 전 세계 수백만 명의 개발자와 고객이 GitHub에 의존하고 있다는 것을 알고 있으며 이 책임을 진지하게 받아들입니다. 따라서 직원과 커뮤니티를 지원하고 전 세계 COVID-19 확산을 막기 위해 다음과 같은 조처를 합니다.
- We’ve decided to pause all non-essential domestic and international business travel for our teams around the world. We’ll revisit this position in the coming weeks as we learn more from the Centers for Disease Control and World Health Organization.
- We’re a distributed global team, and we’ll continue to work together the same way we’ve always worked—virtually, asynchronously, and on GitHub. Our offices will remain open, but if employees who work in one of our offices or coworking spaces would prefer to work from home during this time, we support that decision. As a distributed company since our inception, we already have systems in place for fully remote work.
- We also ask that any employee who is sick take time off to rest and that all employees follow preventative practices like frequent hand washing, avoiding touching their faces, and practicing social distancing.
- We’re conducting preventative cleaning and sanitization in our San Francisco and European offices, and we’re currently assessing all GitHub offices (including coworking spaces) to minimize the risk and respond quickly in the event the virus is detected.
- We’re switching our GitHub Satellite conference this year from a physical, in-person event to a virtual event on May 6, 2020. While there are many benefits in bringing our community together in real life, given the uncertainty of the spread of the virus over the coming months, we’ve decided to focus our efforts on hosting an exceptional virtual event that will help our developers, maintainers, customers, partners, and employees learn and get inspired, without being in the same room. We’ll share more details soon.
We hope these decisions prevent any disruptions to your experience using GitHub or meeting IRL. We’ll continue to monitor COVID-19 around the world and global health organizations’ recommendations to help keep our community and employees safe as news develops.
