A Shell worker has tested positive for coronavirus in Aberdeen.
The employee, who works at the energy giant’s regional headquarters in Tullos, has been referred to health authorities.
Shell confirmed that Health Protection Scotland has been informed and those who have worked closely with the individual have been directed to work from home and contact NHS 24.
A Shell spokesman said: “Shell’s priority is the safety and health of our people and the safe operations of all our businesses. We continue to monitor the situation closely and follow the advice of the relevant UK authorities.
“Currently, all Shell UK offices are open and we have a robust cleaning programme which is proportionate to the current risk level. However, we have business continuity plans in place to ensure the sustainability of our supply chain and our ability to meet the needs of our customers and partners if the situation develops further.”
