Off the air ang 24-hour news channel na CNN Philippines mula ngayong Martes, March 18, hanggang bukas, March 19.

Ito ay matapos magpositibo sa COVID-19 ang empleyado ng isa sa mga opisina sa Worldwide Corporate Center, ang building sa Shaw Boulevard na kinaroroonan ng CNN Philippines.

Pansamantalang hindi mapapanood ang mga programa ng CNN Philippines upang mapatupad ng building management ang kinakailangang disinfection at sanitation.

Ito ang official statement na inilabas ng pamunuan ng CNN Philippines sa Twitter ngayong araw:

"The management of the Worldwide Corporate Center along Shaw Boulevard — where CNN Philippines is housed — will be disinfecting the premises after an employee of another office within the building has been confirmed infected.

"As a result, CNN Philippines will be off the air for at least 24 hours.

"CNN Philippines will continue to provide the news through its website and its Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram accounts. Updates will also be posted on the CNN Philippines Viber community.
