Employees at Chevron Corp.'s Canary Wharf, London, office were working from home on Wednesday, as the company awaited results from coronavirus tests.

A worker at the U.S. oil giant's trading operations had flu-like symptoms earlier in the week, prompting a decision to ask staff at that office to telecommute, according to a person familiar with the matter. Some 300 employees work at Chevron's Canary Wharf office.

The company provided coronavirus testing for the employee with symptoms. Normally, test results are available within 24 hours. However, the person said, the Chevron employee's results have been delayed due to a rising number of people in London who are also receiving tests.

In the meantime, Chevron is "taking precautionary measures to reduce [its employees] risk of exposure," a company spokeswoman said.
