Generali Switzerland on Friday said that it would prohibit staff meetings, events and training courses with more than 10 people and will expand its home office facilities from next week.

From March 9 to 31, the Swiss insurance company will encourage employees to work from home, and is prohibiting business trips until the end of March. Employees returning from risk areas must also work from home.

"We are taking the situation very seriously and asking our employees to follow the measures communicated to help minimize the risk of infection," said Andreas Kruemmel, chief executive of Generali Switzerland, which is part of Assicurazioni Generali SpA.

The Swiss government has banned all major events with more than 1,000 people until at least March 15.
