Coronavirus Alert

CORONAVIRUS fears have prompted an office in London’s Canary Wharf to close as an employee awaits test results for the virus.

More than 300 staff members of American oil company Chevron were sent home after an employee reported flu symptoms after returning from a country battling coronavirus, formally named COVID-19. Traders, exploration and refining unit staff were instructed to work from home until the test results have determined whether the employee has the virus. The office is located at 1 Westferry Circus in Canary Wharf, south London.

In a statement, a company spokesperson said: “Chevron continues to monitor the situation very closely, utilizing the guidance of international and local health authorities.

“Our primary concern is the health and safety of our employees and we are taking precautionary measures to reduce their risk of exposure.”
