A NATO staff member working at its Brussels headquarters has tested positive for the virus, according to its press office.
“The staff member had come back from a holiday in northern Italy, felt unwell at the end of last week, and was tested due to the onset of fever-like symptoms,” according to a statement from the alliance.
It added that the staff member has self-isolated and immediate work colleagues have been working from home since the results came in.
NATO said that it has taken preventative measures, based on World Health Organization (WHO) guidance, “these include the temporary suspension of certain staff travel, encouraging staff to work from home, and the temporary suspension of group visits to NATO HQ in Brussels.”
