Another Ford (F) employee has reportedly tested positive for the coronavirus at a development center near Cologne, Germany. Previously, two Ford employees in China had reportedly contracted the virus.

As many as 30 employees were sent home from the German facility, out of about 4,000 workers that work at the location, while Ford sanitizes the workspace, according to the Koelnische Rundschau newspaper.

According to the news outlet, Ford said in a statement that the infected employee had been quarantined, and all employees that had primary contact with the worker are required to self-isolate.

The Cologne facility is Ford’s development center for passenger cars in Europe, where a design center, two test tracks, three wind tunnels, a crash laboratory, an acoustic center, and an exhaust emissions laboratory are all located, according to Automotive News Europe.

“Business operations are not affected,” the automaker also said. “The health and safety of our employees, dealers, customers and partners are always Ford’s highest priority.”

Beyond closing the facility, Ford has enacted a global travel ban for its employees until April 17.

More than 109,000 cases of COVID-19 have been reported with more than 3,800 deaths occuring from the virus, according to the World Health Organization
