ECB Says Member of Staff Has Been Diagnosed With Coronavirus

Bookmark

(Bloomberg) -- The European Central Bank said that a member of its staff had been diagnosed with the coronavirus and was receiving the appropriate medical care.

The ECB said in a statement on Monday that around 100 colleagues who had worked in proximity with the member of staff will work from home temporarily and it was undertaking a deep clean of potentially affected office spaces.

“We are committed to respecting the privacy of our colleague at this time and will take all necessary steps to ensure the welfare of our staff,” it said.

ECB officials hold a regular policy meeting on Thursday, followed by a press conference to discuss their decision. The statement made no mention of any change in that plan.
