    IGN understands that CeX, one of the UK’s largest used game retailers, is to close its corporate stores for at least 14 days amid the spread of COVID-19, as employee concerns rose that not enough was being done to prevent virus transfer between staff and customers.

    CeX is a second hand-only retailer, dealing in game software and hardware, as well as tech and entertainment products. At time of writing, the majority of its 300+ UK outlets remain open for business, but several employees have now told me that the chain will close as of tonight (although it’s unclear if this will apply to franchises). Those sources tell me that employees due to work during that time should receive pay commensurate with their scheduled hours, or pay according to average recent wages for those on 0-hour contracts.
