Four employees of ABC7 were kept away from work Tuesday out of concern that they may have been exposed to the coronavirus, according to Chicago media reporter Robert Feder.

On Monday, a reporter and photographer interviewed a food service worker at Northwest Community Hospital in Arlington Heights, where a coronavirus patient is being treated, Feder reported. The photographer later shook hands with another photographer at the station. The spouse of the initial photographer is also employed at the television station.

All four did not come to work Tuesday, pending coronavirus testing on the food service worker.
