Ferrari has shut down production at its Formula 1 and road-car factories in Italy for two weeks as a result of the coronavirus crisis.
It is part of a wider lockdown that began last week across badly-hit Italy.
Ferrari said the decision had been made "for its employees' wellbeing".
Chief executive officer Louis Camilleri said: "It is out of our respect for them, their peace of mind and of their families that we have decided on this course of action."
Italy is the worst affected country in Europe, with over 1,440 deaths so far.
Other F1 teams are carrying on working for now, despite the uncertainty over when the season will start this year.
Mercedes' two F1 factories in the UK will continue normal operations but all team members returning from Melbourne will self-isolate for 14 days.
Ferrari's decision comes after the F1 season was suspended following the cancellation of this weekend's Australian Grand Prix.
A decision to postpone the succeeding Bahrain and Vietnam races followed hours after the Melbourne race was called off on Friday morning in Australia. The Chinese Grand Prix, which had been scheduled to be the fourth event of the season, was postponed in February.
This is a good point. Honda quit F1 at the end if 2008 and Toyota quit at the end of 2009 following the fallout of the 2007-2008 global financial crisis. BMW's exit at the end of 2009 was also partly motivated by the financial situation as well as poor performance.In addition, if car manufacturers take a hit, their associated F1 teams may come under pressure to justify their continued presence on the grid to their top management and boards.
The way the handled it for the people there was appalling. They knew the race would be cancelled Thurs night yet still told fans to show up for FP1 and then barring them at the gates. All because they were arguing about who would make the announcement and look bad.Nice of him to apologise, but honestly, no apology necessary. He stood to lose more if they had gone ahead with the circus - the world has collectively decided that travel bans are the most effective way to deal with it.
