Morgan Stanley said that an employee at its suburban New York office has tested positive for the coronavirus disease.
The bank conducted a “deep cleaning” of the Purchase office after making the discovery, the New York-based firm told employees Tuesday in an email. The building houses much of the firm’s wealth management operations and more recently was made a backup site for the bank’s traders amid contingency planning for the spread of coronavirus.
“We wanted to make you aware than an employee based in Purchase has tested positive for the coronavirus disease,” the bank said in the email obtained by CNBC. “Fortunately, the employee was already self-quarantined for some time and is doing well and recovering at home.”
