Reportedly IT company HCL Technologies on thursday said one employee from its noida office has tested positive for coronavirus. The employee is currently in an isolation ward, the company said in a statement, adding that all prescribed protocols of sanitisation and contact tracing have been done.
HCL Tech said "Unfortunately, one employee from our noida office has been tested positive for the Novel coronavirus while he was in self-isolation after his return from international travel and hence our office is following all government and health advisory protocols".

The company said it is constantly monitoring all information sources including WHO alerts, complying with all government advisories globally, and has instituted a series of actions to help employees take better care of themselves and their families and help prevent the spread of the Covid-19 virus. All other employees are in good health and are being monitored continuously. We have invoked our COVID-19 Contingency Plan in all geographies which aims at maximising Work from home to aid social distancing and also issued a travel advisory across the company, taking full precautionary measures and suspending all non-essential travel until further notice. The company said "Our recently launched global helpline for Covid-19 provides 24X7 support to our employees".
