Virus Caution Reported At SiriusXM
Page Six at The NY Post is reporting a top exec at SiriusXM has been quarantined to help prevent the spread of coronavirus.
In a memo to staff, the human resources department said SVP of channel management Sally McMahon had held a meeting Wednesday with her team — and it turned out that some of the attendees had recently traveled through Japan, which has been heavily struck by the virus.
“In an excess of caution,” read the memo, “because people were together for a significant part of the day, we have instructed the participants of that meeting to self-quarantine by working from home for the next 14 days.”
The network has also put in place a set of rules. It’s banned international business travel, telling staffers who have already booked trips to cancel them, and telling staff who have been in contact with anyone who’s been in China, Iran, Italy, Japan or South Korea to stay home for 14 days.
The rules also say, “Please confirm with any guests or visitors who may be coming into our offices that they have been in the U.S. for the past two weeks. If they have not, please do your meeting by phone or Zoom.”
