Staff at a Singapore branch of DBS Bank were evacuated from their office today after one employee tested positive for the novel coronavirus.  

In a statement, DBS “confirms that one employee has been infected with the novel coronavirus” and that as a precautionary measure “we ensured that all employees on the affected floor of the Marina Bay Financial Center vacated the premises.”

The bank added that it is currently conducting contact tracing with “all employees and parties the infected employee may have come into contact with.” 

Meanwhile, office spaces and common areas like elevators and bathrooms are being deep cleaned and disinfected.

Singapore currently has 47 confirmed cases of the novel coronavirus.
