KANSAS CITY, Mo. — According to Black & Veatch, two of their employees who are being monitored because of possible exposure to COVID-19 on a flight still are not showing any symptoms of the virus.

The company said that one of the two exposed employees will be under daily evaluation by the Johnson County Department of Health to decide whether they need to be tested for the coronavirus.

All other employees who were not on the flight with the two being monitored were allowed to return to work this week and are not deemed a health risk to the public.

The two possibly infected employees and others they came in close contact with are still under a 14-day self-quarantine to make sure they do not show symptoms.
