DAVENPORT, Iowa (KWQC) - Three employees at Arconic have tested positive for the novel coronavirus, COVID-19, a spokesman confirmed Monday.

In an email to TV6 Monday morning, Communications and Public Affairs Manager John Riches said:

“We have been notified that at least one employee at Davenport has tested positive for COVID-19.

All notifications are taken seriously, and protocols are in place to manage these situations and evaluate any exposures that may have occurred when the infected individual was last on premises.

As a precaution, co-workers who were in close contact will remain home to self-quarantine consistent with our protocols.

We continue to maintain heightened hygiene measures, increased social distancing, and working remotely when possible, as recommended by relevant health authorities.”

When asked when they were notified or if the company can comment on how many employees are self-quarantining, Riches said Monday afternoon that at this time they've been notified of three confirmed cases.

"I really can’t answer other questions," Riches said. "But we had two cases reported to us yesterday and one this morning for a total of three."
