The change comes as companies are taking increasingly aggressive steps to prevent the spread of the coronavirus disease, COVID-19. Earlier in the day, Amazon confirmed to Business Insider that it had instructed all 798,000 of its employees to "defer non-essential travel."That's in addition to the company's existing restrictions on employee travel to and from China, which have been in effect since January.
