Coronavirus: Employees at 2 GTA offices told to stay home after possible COVID-19 exposure

Employees at two offices in the Greater Toronto Area have been told to stay home after possible exposure to the novel coronavirus.

At the Royal Bank of Canada’s Meadowvale office in Mississauga, employees who work on the same floor as an individual who had a presumptive case of COVID-19 have been told to self-quarantine “until further notice.”

“We learned late last week of a possible case of COVID-19 at our Meadowvale office complex, and that case has since been confirmed by public health,” RBC said in a statement to Global News.

“Upon learning of the presumptive case, we took a number of immediate steps to protect the health and safety of our employees … We immediately undertook a disinfecting of the impacted floor and in all common areas, including elevators, cafeteria and washrooms.

“We continue to work with public health in determining advice and next steps for our employees on the impacted floor.”

RBC said company officials remain in contact with affected staff.
