[ANNOUNCEMENT] COVID-19 and Yo [March 17th, 2020)

Postby Viking Sarah » Tue Mar 17, 2020 1:46 pm

Hey YoFans!

I'm writing this post from my home computer as all Big Viking Games and YoWorld Vikings have been instructed to temporarily start working from home as of this past Monday. In light of the current climate, Big Viking Games wants to ensure that each and every single one of you are also doing what you can to remain safe, healthy, and informed in regards to COVID-19.

The World Health Organization has declared COVID-19 a global pandemic, and has provided the following information in regards to it:
Coronaviruses (CoV) are a large family of viruses that cause illness ranging from the common cold to more severe diseases such as Middle East Respiratory Syndrome (MERS-CoV) and Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS-CoV).

Coronavirus disease (COVID-19) is a new strain that was discovered in 2019 and has not been previously identified in humans.

Common signs of infection include respiratory symptoms, fever, cough, shortness of breath and breathing difficulties. In more severe cases, infection can cause pneumonia, severe acute respiratory syndrome, kidney failure and even death.

Standard recommendations to prevent infection spread include regular hand washing, covering mouth and nose when coughing and sneezing, thoroughly cooking meat and eggs. Avoid close contact with anyone showing symptoms of respiratory illness such as coughing and sneezing.

(For full information regarding COVID-19 from the World Health Organization, please visit https://www.who.int/health-topics/coronavirus)

As of right now, everything is still 100% operational at YoWorld HQ and we are incredibly happy to provide everyone a safe-space within YoWorld during this challenging time. As this situation has to be addressed on a day-to-day basis, (and sometimes even hourly), we'd like to thank each and every one of you in advance for your patience and understanding should our current set-up need to be temporarily adjusted again in the near future. Of course, we'll be sure to communicate any additional updates as needed and when they are available.

In the meantime, the entire Viking team is sending our love and positive thoughts to every single one of you and all who may have been impacted by COVID-19. We also strongly advise for everyone to be following the recommendations put forth by the World Health Organization, as well as your local and federal leaders.

For additional information on COVID-19 and to stay up-to-date, please visit the following links:

From all of us here, we wish only for you and your loved ones to remain safe and healthy as we all weather this storm together. :heart: :heart: :heart:
