Here’s everything we know so far…
As the coronavirus continues to rapidly spread throughout the country, news has just broke of Fox’s Lou Dobbs having been placed in quarantine after a Fox employee close to Dobbs tested positive.
According to the Washington Examiner, “Lou is in self-quarantine tonight. We just learned that one of his team members has tested positive for COVID-19,” fill-in host David Asman stated earlier today. “Lou feels well. He has no symptoms, but, out of an abundance of caution, he and his team are taking the necessary precautions.”
At the age 74, Dobbs falls into an age group that is highly susceptible to life threatening complications.
“We wanted to inform you that we just learned less than an hour ago that one of our FOX Business colleagues on the 20th floor has tested positive for COVID-19. Friday March 13th was the last day this employee was working in the office,” CEO Suzanne Scott and President Jay Wallace said.
“As soon as we learned of the test result, we mandated that this employee’s direct co-workers/team self-quarantine for 14 days since last contact at the direction of our medical professionals. We are also doing a deep cleaning of all areas affected and will be continuing all of our aggressive sanitizing and disinfecting efforts throughout the entire building.”
