The below email was sent to tenants of One Prudential Plaza Wednesday morning. Prudential Plaza is home to Tribune Publishing and the Chicago Tribune:
Our team has been advised that an employee who works at One Pru has tested positive for COVID-19. It is our understanding that the employee felt ill last Thursday, March 5, went home and was tested and diagnosed with the virus very late this afternoon. The employee has not returned to the property since feeling ill last Thursday.
As a precaution, we encourage our tenants to remind all employees that anyone who feels ill should stay home and contact a health professional if they develop symptoms consistent with those of COVID-19.
We will continue to follow all cleaning and disinfection recommendations put forth by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and World Health Organization (WHO) and have been aggressively cleaning all high touch areas throughout the buildings.
As a reminder, routine hygiene procedures should be emphasized during this time. Please wash your hands often with soap and warm water; use hand sanitizer; avoid touching your face, nose, and eyes; if you cough or sneeze, cover your mouth and nose with your bent elbow; and do not shake hands with others.
To confirm, One Two Pru will be open for business tomorrow. We encourage tenant leadership teams to discuss the logistics of possible work-from-home programs if you feel it to be necessary.
