LONDON (Reuters) – Facebook said on Friday it is closing its London offices until Monday after a visiting employee from Singapore was diagnosed with coronavirus.
“An employee based in our Singapore office who has been diagnosed with COVID-19 visited our London offices February 24-26, 2020,” Facebook said in a statement.
“We are therefore closing our London offices until Monday for deep cleaning and employees are working from home until then.”
