WeWork said one of its New York City locations got “enhanced cleaning” after a company in the coworking space reported one of its employees may have been exposed to someone who is believed to have coronavirus.
Yesterday, WeWork was notified that an employee of a company that works in one of its Midtown buildings “may have had exposure to someone who is believed to have contracted Coronavirus.” According to a WeWork spokesperson, “this person exited the building immediately and will self-quarantine at home for 14 days.”
WeWork immediately informed other members at the location. The building then received “enhanced cleaning overnight” and remains open.
The member has been identified as an employee of the financial organization Teachers, Insurance and Annuity Association, or TIAA.
According to a TIAA spokesperson, “the associate, who has no symptoms, will be working from home for a period of 14 days in self-quarantine, in alignment with CDC guidance. We have, and will continue to take all necessary precautionary measures, following the advice of public health officials.”
