ARN confirmed in a statement released today that a staff member who had recent contact with someone that had returned from overseas, had tested positive..

“After contact with a person who recently returned from overseas, late yesterday a staff member of the ARN Melbourne team tested positive for COVID-19.

“This staff member had minimal access within the ARN Melbourne office and as all non-essential staff were already working from home, this person’s contact with others at ARN was limited.

“The health and well-being of our people is our number one priority and, as such, we’re in constant communication with any Melbourne staff who may have been in contact with this person.

“In line with Government advice, the ARN Melbourne office is currently closed while being professionally sanitised.

“Due to ARN’s business continuity plans, the GOLD104.3 and KIIS 101.1 stations remain broadcasting and our technology and resources are in place to ensure all staff, including on air talent, news and content teams, can work from home and other appropriate locations.

“We will continue to work with the appropriate Government bodies to further contain and manage the situation.”
