BRUSSELS (Reuters) - The European Union’s economics commissioner Paolo Gentiloni is in self-isolation after a member of his staff showed symptoms of COVID-19, the disease caused by the novel coronavirus, his office said on Tuesday.

“Commissioner Gentiloni has been self-isolating at home for the last few days after a member of his staff displayed symptoms typical of the coronavirus,” his office said in a note.

“The commissioner is well and working from home,” it added.
