A worker at one of Kankakee County’s top employers has tested positive for COVID-19.  CSL Behring employees around 1,700 people locally.

Earlier today in a letter to employees, the company said:

“A Kankakee CSL Behring employee has been tested and confirmed to have the coronavirus (COVID-19). This individual is receiving medical attention and is self-quarantined.” the company said in a statement issued today.

CSL says the employee hasn’t engaged with anyone at the company since March 25th.

“We recognize that learning a colleague has been diagnosed with COVID-19 is likely to cause anxiety. It is important to remain calm and stay focused. CSL takes the COVID-19 situation very seriously and we are monitoring this outbreak closely. We want you and your family members to remain safe and encourage you to follow all of our recommended precautions from local government and health officials.” CSL stated in a letter to employees.

The Company says the Kankakee site will continue to operate.  Earlier this month CSL pitched WHO to aid them in the COVID-19 pandemic.
