To date, CERN has information of 15 members of its personnel having tested positive for coronavirus (COVID-19), of which two are currently not in the local area. Whenever CERN is informed of a tested or suspected case, the Medical Service follows the evolution of the concerned person’s health closely. The Medial Service applies procedures to quickly identify the individuals' close professional on-site contacts (if any) in order to ensure their well-being and self-quarantine, with a view to safeguarding their health, as well as that of the communities they are in. The number of CERN members of personnel confirmed to have been diagnosed with COVID-19 will be updated weekly.

CERN was informed on 14 April of the sad news of the death of a CERN user, who was last at CERN in mid-March, due to COVID-19. Our thoughts and heartfelt condolences go to the family and friends of our colleague. CERN extends its support and thoughts to all those within its community affected by the pandemic, whether now or in the coming months.
