Two employees based in ESPN’s office in New York City have tested positive for the coronavirus and are recovering at home.
In a company-wide memo to staff obtained by USA TODAY Sports, ESPN says the two employees were last in the office on March 11 and 12 — and it believes all employees who may have come in close contact with them have been working from home since then.
The memo does not name the employees, citing privacy concerns.
