BREAKING: Capital One Employee in Tysons Tests Positive for Coronavirus

Capital One says that one of its Tysons employees has tested positive for coronavirus.

“Today, we were notified that a Capital One colleague who works in our office at 8020 Towers Crescent Drive, in Tysons, Virginia, tested positive for coronavirus (COVID-19) and is currently receiving the appropriate medical care,” according to a statement from the banking giant to Tysons Reporter.

The building is behind Tysons Corner Center.

The statement says that after Capital One learned about the diagnosis today (Friday), the “impacted office” was closed.

“[We] are following recommended guidelines from the CDC and other public health authorities to disinfect the space and common areas,” the statement says.

More from the statement:

We are in the process of identifying and notifying those who came into close contact with this associate to provide information on steps to take if they have symptoms of illness and to ask them to self-quarantine for 14 days.

As our CEO shared earlier this week, Capital One has proactively taken steps to encourage and enable social distancing, including asking those in roles that can be performed remotely to work from home, temporarily suspending all non-essential business travel and announcing increased paid leave and more flexible attendance policies.

We wish this associate a full and quick recovery, and have offered support and outreach to them and their family. As always, our priority remains focused on the health, safety, and well-being of our associates, customers, and communities.

Bloomberg News first reported on Wednesday that the banking giant was asking people to work from home starting on Thursday (March 12).

The memo said that the company will announce increased paid sick leave and flexible attendance policies.

As of late 2018, Capital One, which has 52,000 employees in total, had moved approximately 2,000 employees to its new headquarters next to the McLean Metro station.
