    Per the Sidley memo:

    "In the current situation, employees who are foreign nationals may have additional restrictions on their travel, their ability to obtain visas and travel documents, and other considerations. Government operations issues such as closures of foreign consulates will require additional advance planning to ensure minimal disruption in work and travel schedules. Depending on the employee’s visa classification, there may be special compliance implications to the employer related to work from home policies, workplace office closures, work stoppages and other consequences of disrupted business activity."
