Information on the Covid-19 situation
The health and safety of our employees are always our highest priority. Beyond the company, we also consider it our duty to act responsibly and to do our part to protect society.
Siemens is continuously monitoring all aspects of the Covid-19 situation, evaluating all new developments and taking measures to protect its employees. The economic consequences of Covid-19 will impact Siemens. On March 18, 2020, Siemens Investor Relations released a business update on this impact. Nevertheless, it’s not yet possible to sufficiently quantify the business consequences at this time.
We’re doing everything we can to maintain operations at our production plants as well as our service to continue to support our customers and partners as far as possible. This is particularly important in areas in which, together with customers, we provide products and services for vital infrastructure. As we do this, the health and safety of our employees and our partners are always a top priority. And we are, of course, cooperating closely with the relevant public authorities, works councils and representatives of people with disabilities.
Ever since the Covid-19 outbreak began, Siemens has been continuously implementing timely measures to protect its employees and its partners, and the company will continue to do so rigorously.
