The Philippine Stock Exchange Inc. (PSE) has shut down its trading floor and head office in Bonifacio Global City for 24 hours for decontamination after an employee tested positive for coronavirus (COVID-19).

But stock market trading will not be affected by the closure of the trading floor as trading participants are equipped to conduct offsite trading, the PSE announced on Wednesday.

The local bourse also assured that its business functions would not be hampered by the closure as its employees have followed an alternative work arrangement.

The PSE said it would initiate contact tracing to identify the individuals that the employee was in close contact with when the staff member was in the premises of the exchange.
