A person who tested positive for coronavirus worked in Crystal City, ARLnow has learned.
Property owner JBG Smith emailed tenants Monday afternoon to say that an employee of one of its tenants was confirmed to have the virus, also known as COVID-19. The employee worked at office buildings located at 201 12th Street S. and 1225 S. Clark Street, according to the email.
“It is our understanding that the tenant has notified their staff and has advised any staff that was in contact with the infected individual to self-quarantine,” the memo said. “The tenant has also engaged an environmental contractor to begin disinfecting their space. As a result of this single tenant space disinfection, some building occupants may detect a slight odor.”
“Our cleaning vendor, BMS, will work to disinfect all common areas on the floors that the tenant occupies, and the building and complex common areas,” the memo continues. “We have maximized the outdoor fresh air in the building. At this time all buildings in the complex will remain open and operating.”
ARLnow hears that the tenant is the Dept. of Defense and the employee is the Marine at Ft. Belvoir previously reported to have tested positive for the virus.
A spokesman for Arlington’s Dept. of Human Services declined to confirm the report, citing Virginia Dept. of Health policy.
