As a result, the area where the staffer worked underwent a "deep clean" overnight.
"We wanted to warn anyone who may be working on site tonight, so you do not get alarmed if you see people in cleaning suits around the building."
Common areas have also been deep cleaned after the possible case was identified.
The Herald has approached MediaWorks for an official comment.
However, staff have been told that contact-tracing was now being carried out.
Anyone who would be identified as being a possible close contact to the employee would receive an email in the coming days, the email said.
