Facebook Inc. is paying all of its 45,000 employees an extra $1,000 to help manage expenses during the Covid-19 outbreak.

Chief Executive Officer Mark Zuckerberg announced the decision Tuesday in a memo to workers, earlier reported by The Information. The bonus applies to the social network’s full-time employees, who as of now can’t come into the office for health and safety reasons and therefore won’t have access to their usual catered meals, gyms and other services provided by Facebook.
