BREAKING: Employee at Fairfax Square Tests Positive for Coronavirus

An employee at a building in Fairfax Square in Tysons has tested positive for coronavirus, JBG SMITH said.

“We were notified that an employee of one of our tenants at 8075 Leesburg Pike had tested positive for COVID-19,” JBG SMITH said in a statement to Tysons Reporter.

Located along Leesburg Pike directly behind Tysons Corner Center, Fairfax Square consists of several buildings with commercial and office space.

The building at 8075 Leesburg Pike houses Mynd Spa, Elegance by Roya, Roche Bobois Paris and Liljenquist & Beckstead on the ground floor, along with several office tenants.

JBG SMITH did not say which tenant the coronavirus patient works for.

More from the statement:

The ongoing health and well-being of our tenants, employees, vendors, and visitors to our buildings is our top priority.  We are regularly monitoring developments related to COVID-19 and will continue to follow all of the guidance provided by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and local health authorities.

A notification was then issued in the building and work began to “fully disinfect and sanitize the tenant’s interior space and common space,” the statement said.

An environmental contractor disinfected and sanitized the building’s lobby and common areas, the statement said.

“We also maximized the fresh outdoor air coming into the building and replaced all air filters,” JBG SMITH said. “After the close of business that same day, we brought in another environmental contractor to perform a second deep clean of all common areas in the building.”

Arjun Chaudhary, an employee at Roche Bobois Paris, told Tysons Reporter that building management has been keeping the furniture retailer regularly updated.

“They are doing a fairly decent,” he said. “There are so many hand sanitizers at every entrance.”

Chaudhary said that the sick employee did not work at Roche Bobois Paris, which is currently open to shoppers.
