Coronavirus test results are awaited on an East Devon District Council employee but its offices will reopen tomorrow (Monday, March 9).
The council closed the Blackdown House offices on Friday after a possible case of the virus was identified in a member of staff who had returned from Italy.
A statement said test results were awaited on the employee, who would remain in isolation.
An EDDC spokesman said previously: 'They are displaying potential symptoms and although the risk is very low, we are taking the correct measures.
'All members of staff have been sent home and the majority will be able to continue working remotely.
'The offices will be thoroughly cleansed, according to recommended guidelines, over the weekend and we anticipate reopening early next week.'
