The employee based in Singapore visited the social media giant’s office between February 24-26 and was later diagnosed with COVID-19.

Employees have been told to work from home through the weekend and the company has also advised those who came into contact with the infected employee to self-quarantine and monitor themselves for any symptoms.

“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.”
