Coronavirus Quarantines SiriusXM Employees

Page Six is reporting that a top exec at SiriusXM had to be quarantined to help prevent the spread of coronavirus.

A memo was reportedly sent out to staffers by the human resources department, which said SVP of channel management, Sally McMahon, had held a meeting with her team. Apparently, some had recently traveled to Japan, which has been heavily struck by the virus.

“In an excess of caution,” reads the memo, “because people were together for a significant part of the day, we have instructed the participants of that meeting to self-quarantine by working from home for the next 14 days.”

Furthermore, according to Page Six, it’s “banned international business travel, telling staffers who have already booked trips to cancel them, and telling staff who have been in contact with anyone who’s been in China, Iran, Italy, Japan or South Korea to stay home for 14 days.”

The memo also said, “Please confirm with any guests or visitors who may be coming into our offices that they have been in the U.S. for the past two weeks. If they have not, please do your meeting by phone or Zoom.”

A second memo was also sent out.

“You may have seen a published report in the New York Post about SiriusXM and the coronavirus,” the memo stated, which came after Page Six‘s report. “Here is simply what is going on: at a meeting yesterday, we realized a handful of team members had stopped over for a few hours in an airport in Japan. That is all. There is no evidence of the coronavirus among our employees.”

LOL! Well… turns out, memos are as rampant as the coronavirus itself!
