Apple announced March 10 that an employee at its Cork, Ireland, office has been diagnosed with COVID-19, according to CNBC.

This is the first known infection of an Apple employee. The company has asked employees at the Cupertino, Calif., headquarters to work from home if possible.

"One of our employees in Cork has been confirmed to have Covid-19," an Apple spokesperson told CNBC. "We are closely coordinating with the local health authorities who feel the risk to others is low, and the individual remains in self-isolation. As a precaution, we have asked some of our team members to stay at home while we work with the Health and Safety Executive to assess the situation. We are continuing to regularly deep clean all our offices and stores and will take all necessary precautions in accordance with guidance from health authorities."
