As a result of the development, an internal investigation has begun at ABS that will result in the entire evening crew being off duty. Additionally, members of the news department who might have come in contact with the employee will have to remain home.
The memo noted that arrangements have been made for the entire premises to be sanitized and other employees will be told of their working hours going forward.
The general manager has expressed confidence that through their ongoing efforts, the risk to the general staff body is mitigated.
