Recruitment firm Indeed says one of its employees in Singapore who visited Dublin recently may have been exposed to the virus.

Employees at the Dublin offices of Indeed have been told to work from home this week amid concerns of coronavirus.

The tech multinational employs around 1000 Dublin based staff and is one of the country’s biggest firms of its type.

The recruitment agency said that one of its employees in Singapore who visited Dublin recently may have been exposed to the virus.

The company confirmed the move is being taken as a precaution.

“One of Indeed’s employees in Singapore may have been exposed to coronavirus after their family members visited a facility caring for a coronavirus patient,” Indeed told the Irish Independent.

“While there are no confirmed cases of infection, out of an abundance of caution for the health and safety of our employees, we have asked all employees in Singapore, along with anyone who has recently visited our Singapore offices, to work from home until February 17.

“Since some employees who visited Singapore have recently visited our Sydney and Dublin offices, we are asking all employees in the Dublin and Sydney offices to work from home until we have received confirmation,” it added.
