Update (1420ET): As CNBC just reported, the novel coronavirus has finally hit Wall Street. Barclays on Tuesday confirmed that an employee in its New York City midtown office has tested positive for Covid-19. The employee worked on the second floor. Morgan Stanley said an employee at its Purchase office has contracted the virus, but they started self-quarantining early enough to likely avoid exposing coworkers.

An employee at BlackRock in New York has also tested positive. And let’s not forget Steve Cohen’s Point72, where a back-office employee who worked on the 14th floor of the firm’s NYC office reportedly tested positive.

Meanwhile, North Carolina Gov. Cooper declared a state of emergency Tuesday afternoon, becoming the latest state to do so. The decision activates the Emergency Operations Center to help agencies coordinate their response, while also making it easier to purchase medical supplies, protects consumers from price gouging, and increases county health funds.
