In a press release issued today, Capcom President and CEO Haruhiro Tsujimoto has confirmed that an employee at the company has contracted coronavirus (COVID-19).

The release notes that one employee working at Capcom's headquarters in Chuo-ku, Osaka has tested positive for the virus. Capcom promises to work with health authorities to try and prevent any further spread, committing to exploring the employee's recent activity and anyone who may have come into contact with them, and disinfecting the company office.

It reads, "the highest priority [will be] given to the prevention of the spread of infections inside and outside the company and the safety of employees, business partners, and partner companies."

A Nintendo of America employee also tested positive for coronavirus last month, resulting in company-wide closures across its headquarters, New York retail store, and repair centres.
