An office building in Sydney’s northern suburbs is in lockdown after a worker tested positive for COVID-19 on Wednesday night. 

Workers on the floor of the building have been instructed to self-isolate.

The identified workplace is the Datacom contact centre at North Ryde, CEO Greg Davidson confirmed.

“We have taken further precautionary measures to close the entire floor where the person was working until further notice and have sent all our people home to self-isolate and get tested,” he said.

Davidson stated that while most of the company’s Sydney employees had been working from home, some of the roles required staff to work in the office.

He also added that all those instructed to self-isolate were doing so on full pay.

“We are monitoring the issue closely and working with NSW Health to ensure any further actions are taken.”

A student from nearby Macquarie University also contacted the virus. If you visited the Macquarie University Sports and Aquatic Centre outdoor pool area at North Ryde on 7 October 2020 between 5.30am-10.30am, you should monitor for symptoms.
