Multiple employees in Truman Building test positive for coronavirus

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. — More than 100 employees in the Truman Building were tested for COVID-19 this week after 15 people received positive results, according to the Office of Administration.

The positive cases were among employees in one area of the building, according to a statement from OA. Close contacts have been advised to work from home for the time being, and further testing will be considered based on Tuesday’s results.

“Close contacts of the infected employees in the impacted area were asked to work from home pending their test results,” the statement said. “Employees are not required to disclose their vaccination status and will return to work consistent with the circumstances of their health and the current CDC guidance. Future group testing opportunities will be assessed when the results of today’s testing are available.”

Gov. Mike Parson ordered state employees to return to in-person work by May 17 after a year of remote work in the face of the pandemic. Parson noted the work employees were able to do from home and the progress the state made during an unconventional year.
