COVID-19 Update (April 2, 2020)

April 2, 2020

We would like to offer our prayers for those lives that have been lost due to the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) and express our heartfelt well wishes to those who have been infected. Olympus has set up a global task force to ensure business continuity as the novel coronavirus spreads, and we are taking various measures to maintain supplies of products and services while carrying out our top priority of protecting the health and safety of employees, healthcare professionals, patients, and communities.

In response to the rapid increase in infections in Tokyo, in principal, all employees of Olympus Corporation and Olympus Group companies in Tokyo were originally instructed to work from home from Thursday, March 26 until Friday, April 3. However, due to the situation’s further deterioration, the duration was extended to Friday, April 10. Further action beyond April 10 will be finalized upon assessing the current situation at that time.

At present, Olympus production and repair centers have not been significantly impacted by COVID-19 and are operating normally. However, out of concern that circumstances may affect business activities moving forward, we will provide updates with timely information.
