CSL has confirmed a positive COVID-19 cases at its Broadmeadows manufacturing facility.
Neil Mitchell confirmed the red hot tip he received on Monday.
“Now, I’m told it’s not compromising their operations, thankfully, but it is a good reminder that anybody can be affected by this,” the 3AW Mornings host said.
A CSL spokesperson said the following to 3AW Mornings:
“CSL confirms there was a positive COVID-19 case at the Broadmeadows manufacturing facility last week,” they said.
“All employees and contractors who were present at the same time as the confirmed case have been tracked and traced, and close contacts isolated.
“We are pleased that there have been no further positive cases.
“A deep clean was undertaken at the facility and it continues to operate as usual with no interruption to the production of CSL’s lifesaving therapies and vaccines, including production of the AstraZeneca vaccine at our Parkville site.
“As a science-based company which includes the world’s second largest provider of influenza vaccines, we have a comprehensive understanding and appreciation for the public health value that vaccines provide.
“We therefore strongly encourage our people, their families and all Australians to get vaccinated against COVID-19.”
