The management of TV Channel 3 closed its Maleenon 2 Building on Rama IV Road from Thursday night for disinfection after an employee tested positive for Covid-19.
Channel 3 anchor Pitchayatan Chanput on Friday morning announced the closure of the broadcasting building, saying that a male graphic artist whoworked on the fifth and sixth floors of the building had Covid-19.
The building was closed from 10pm on Thursday. Staff on both floors were considered at high risk of catching the disease. All would be tested for Covid-19, she said, during a programme broadcast from the parking lot outside the building.
Miss Pitchayatan said staff on other floors were deemed at low risk of infection. She worked on the ninth floor.
Elevators were risk factors in the building, but they were regularly cleaned, she said.
TV Channel 3 building had been regularly disinfected and management had introduced a work-from-home policy and staggered hours, to reduce crowding in the workplace, she added.
