Citi Says Manhattan Employee Tested Positive for Coronavirus

(Bloomberg) -- Citigroup Inc. said it’s deep-cleaning one floor of its headquarters in Manhattan’s Tribeca neighborhood after an employee based there tested positive for the coronavirus.

The worker was last at the bank’s offices at 388 Greenwich St. a week ago, and was diagnosed on Friday while traveling internationally for personal reasons, Citigroup said in a statement. The company has informed colleagues who worked near the person, who’s not part of Citigroup’s trading operations, to monitor their health and has given them the option to work from home.

“We are cooperating fully with all appropriate government and health authorities and we are adhering to their guidelines on actions to be taken,” the bank said in the statement.
