In a notice to its trading participants, PSE said it was closing its office for one day to undergo total disinfection.
PSE president Ramon Monzon said stock market trading would not be affected by the closure of the trading floor as trading participants are equipped to conduct offsite trading.
“Business functions of the exchange will also not be hampered by the closure as its employees have an alternative work arrangement,” he said.
Monzon said the PSE would initiate contact tracing to identify the individuals that the employee was in close contact with in the premises of the exchange.
The infected employee reportedly attended MerryMart Consumer Corp.’s listing ceremony on the local exchange on June 15.
The test was conducted last Monday (June 22) and the results came in yesterday (June 23).
