Facebook said on Friday it is closing its London offices until Monday morning after a visiting employee from Singapore was tested and 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.”
Facebook also advised employees based in the affected area of its Singapore office to work from home until the 13th of March. It said it had immediately closed the area for deep cleaning.
