FSA quarantines department after swine flu scare

The FSA has sent 10 staff home after one colleague returned from America with a probable case of swine flu.

The regulator emailed staff about the quarantine on Friday, which affected employees in an unnamed department in its Canary Wharf office.

An FSA spokesman says: “One member of FSA staff has been diagnosed with a probable case of swine flu. We are following all relevant guidance for probable cases.”

On May 1 the FSA issued a statement to firms encouraging them to assess their contingency plans and consider what steps they may need to take to address possible issues.
