Statement on Staff Member Testing Positive for Coronavirus COVID19


11/03/2020 - A member of our staff has recently tested positive for the coronavirus Covid-19.


The staff member concerned advised OECD Medical Services after feeling unwell and is now in quarantine. We wish the staff member concerned a full and speedy recovery and are providing all necessary support.


The OECD is identifying and contacting those with whom this person may have been in contact in the course of any professional activity in the past seven days.  Any such individuals are requested to self-quarantine for 14 days from their last contact with our staff member, and to seek appropriate medical care should they experience symptoms.


The physical area where this person works has been closed to staff, delegates, and visitors while it is being cleaned and disinfected, in accordance with OECD protocols.


The OECD will continue to liaise with the French Ministry of Health and with appropriate health authorities in Paris.


Working with over 100 countries, the OECD is a global policy forum that promotes policies to improve the economic and social well-being of people around the world.
