Story Text: Two CBS News employees have tested positive for coronavirus, a CBS Evening News twitter feed announced on Wednesday (March 11), citing a letter sent to employees by CBS News President Susan Zirinsky.
"Employees in the CBS Broadcast Center and CBS News building at 555 West 57th Street will work remotely while the buildings are cleaned and disinfected," the tweet read.
"Zirinsky's email to CBS News staff said the company has identified employees who may have been in direct contact with the individuals who tested positive for the coronavirus. They will be asked to self-quarantine and work remotely for 14 days," another tweet read.
A worker outside of the CBS Broadcast Center building could be seen cleaning door handles as people left the building. Television screens inside the building could be seen from the street reading "Virus Alert. Please stay home."
An email sent to a CBS public relations representative for confirmation was not immediately answered.
