Company issues statement after Covid-19 scare

Zurich International says its Isle of Man office is now ready for employees to return, after a precautionary evacuation yesterday.

Staff were either sent home or told not to come in after a coronavirus scare, and it's thought the facilities were deep cleaned.

The statement in full says: "the health and safety of our employees is paramount.

"We followed internal procedures and responded immediately when we identified that two employees had been in contact with the individual in the community who it seems gave a false positive test, following their negative result yesterday.

"Both employees were tested for Covid-19 and both results were negative.

"Our IOM headquarters is now ready for employees to return."
