Fortescue Metals Group has asked all employees who have travelled overseas to remain at home for 14 days before returning to work. One employee was quarantined at the Christmas Creek iron ore mine after reporting flu-like symptoms following a trip to Bali, and Fortescue has confirmed that they have tested negative for the virus. BHP and Rio Tinto are also actively taking measures to protect their workforces from the coronavirus at their iron ore mines.
