Regarding the Recent Novel Coronavirus Infection at ESPEC
Sep. 14, 2020
It has been confirmed that, as of the evening of Friday, September 11, one member of the staff of our Osaka Office (in Neyagawa City, Osaka Prefecture) was infected with the novel coronavirus.
Following a fever that occurred upon the employee’s returning home from work on Thursday, September 10, the fever did not subside, and so the employee went to a medical institution the following day, Friday, September 11, and took a PCR test, which came back positive. The employee is currently self-quarantined at home.
The Public Health Center has confirmed that no one has come into close contact with the infected individual.
ESPEC has, following the instructions of the Public Health Center, thoroughly disinfected the business office in question. We will also, in cooperation with the Public Health Center with jurisdiction over the office, take appropriate measures to ensure safety, including conducting temperature checks and health observations of all staff at the sales office and their families.
We apologize for any concern that may have been caused to local residents and to everyone else involved.
ESPEC will also continue to take appropriate infection control measures based on the policies of the federal and local governments.
