    Pete , Mar 17, 2020 :
    Dear friends,

    As a brand that was born global and has grown together with its community since day one, OnePlus has always valued open communication and direct engagement with users around the world. As the coronavirus (COVID-19) has continued to affect more people, my heart goes out to everyone who has been impacted by this unfortunate and serious situation, as well as those who have been fighting to contain the virus on the front lines. This is a time for solidarity and honesty, when all of us have to work together and play our part in minimizing the impact of this serious situation.

    Nothing is more important to us than the health and wellbeing of our employees, customers, community members, partners and the entire OnePlus family. We’ve been closely following how the situation is evolving and have been proactively taking all necessary steps to ensure everyone’s health and safety. We continue to strictly follow all necessary precautionary measures in accordance with the guidelines in the countries, regions and cities where we operate. In addition, we have been taking other proactive measures to further protect our employees, including closing our offices in affected areas and asking our employees to work from home. If and when employees are in the office as local conditions permit, we have been taking preventive measures such as providing masks and frequently disinfecting the offices.

    To further protect our users, we are minimizing physical interaction where possible and evaluating how we hold more events and community engagement activities online in the coming months. In areas where delivery (drop/doorstep) services are available, we encourage you to take advantage of them to help minimize the need to leave home. Also, feel free to connect with us, or with each other, here on our forum. We are always here for you.

    Meanwhile, we are still doing all we can to keep our daily operations and customer service up and running to the best of our ability. It is important to us to continue delivering a seamless OnePlus experience to our users while never compromising the health and wellbeing of our team. Currently our product roadmap is pretty much on track, and we look forward to sharing exciting new things with you very soon.

    Last but not least, I encourage everyone to diligently do what you can to stay healthy during this critical time. If we all do our part, we can overcome this situation.

    A very emotional message. I hope and pray everyone stays safe, be vigilant about his surroundings and get out of this as soon as possible.

    Thank you @Pete for this new thread.
    I really hope there was no casualty among OnePlus staff nor their families.

    A community is always as strong as its weakest member, so it's important to stay united and to support each other. Staying in touch by all mean available (forum, phone, social media…) is of great importance.

    Thank you for your message, @Pete

    It's true, these are challenging, uncharted times. But I believe that if all of us do our part, we'll overcome this.

    If you have any doubts, follow the WHO instructions, stay informed from credible sources, think twice before believing and sharing what you see on social media. Wash your hands! And please, say home whenever you can.

    No one is asking us to change the world, but if we do what we are being told to, we are going to make a difference, saving lives while preventing the virus from spreading.

    If you have questions, if you are feeling lonely or even if you are scared, that's normal. Like it was mentioned: the forums will always be here for every single one of you. They were here before, and they are here now more than ever.

    Stay safe and take care, everyone.

    Much love and strength,
    Cheetos
