Ross Video has announced it is temporarily closing its factory in Ottawa, Canada to help reduce the spread of coronavirus.
The Canadian government has requested all non-essential business close to help stop the spread of the virus in the country.
Ross Video said that while it falls into the category of ‘essential business’ as defined by the Ontario government, it has chosen to follow the mandate and suspend manufacturing operations for two weeks in order to protect staff and help reduce the spread of the virus.
“We believe that the two-week shutdown period will not place undue hardship on our clients,” said the company in a statement.
It added that the majority of its technical support teams remain available and are continuing to work from home.
