An entire floor at RBC’s Mississauga campus is under self-isolation after a possible case of COVID-19.

According to RBC spokesperson Gillian McArdle, they found out about the possible case last week.

“We learned late last week of a possible case of COVID-19 at our Meadowvale office complex, and that case has since been confirmed by Public Health,” said McArdle. “Upon learning of the presumptive case, we took a number of immediate steps to protect the health and safety of our employees.”

RBC said the individual has been at home in self-isolation, and as a precautionary measure, they’ve advised the entire floor to do the same.

“As a precautionary measure, we immediately advised employees who work on the same floor to self-quarantine until further notice, and we immediately undertook a disinfecting of the impacted floor and in all common areas, including elevators, cafeteria, and washrooms,” McArdle said.

While the one floor is in self-isolation, McArdle notes that the whole building is not under quarantine.

“The health and wellness of our employees and our clients is always a top priority, and we are firmly committed to providing a healthy and safe workplace,” said McArdle.

“We are actively following the latest guidance provided by local, federal and international public health and government authorities, and we are keeping our employees informed on these developments.”

Earlier on Tuesday, the Province of Ontario confirmed two new positive cases of COVID-19, bringing the total in the province to 36.
