The East Building of LG Twin Towers in Yeouido, western Seoul, has been shuttered partially after a child at the group's in-house day care center tested positive for the novel coronavirus, according to LG, South Korean News Agency (Yonhap).
The child's father, an employee of LG Chem Ltd., tested negative for COVID-19 but is currently in self-isolation.
LG said its in-house day care center will be closed for two weeks, while the third floor of the building will be shuttered until Sunday.
Following a resurgence of virus cases, LG said employees who have come into contact with virus patients are required to work from home for at least two weeks regardless of their virus test results.
LG Twin Towers is home to the group's main affiliates, including LG Chem, LG Electronics Inc. and LG Display Co.
Meanwhile, LG Group said it will offer its training institute in Icheon, south of Seoul, to be used as a treatment center for novel coronavirus patients in the greater Seoul area.
LG Academy has 300 rooms and will help local health authorities' efforts to secure more hospital beds amid a resurgence of COVID-19 cases.
In March, LG provided its facilities and dormitories in North Gyeongsang Province for residential treatment centers following a massive virus outbreak in the southeastern city of Daegu.
