Walmart’s Judith McKenna, Chief Executive Officer – Walmart International, issued a memo to all Walmart associates describing the company’s actions regarding coronavirus:
“As I write this note, I can’t help but take pride in the way our teams come together to support their communities. We may still be in the early stages, but I want you to know that we will be there for our associates and customers every step of the way. Service is core to who we are, and this value shines brightest in moments like these. I am so grateful to our partners, suppliers and especially our associates in China for their work to ensure people have access to important items and services, while keeping the health and safety of all involved top of mind.“
