It was revealed in recent days that a person in Ireland has been diagnosed with rubella for the first time in 11 years.
As there is just one case, the HSE said it cannot reveal where the person actually presented with the illness for confidentiality reasons.
However, The Echo has seen an email sent to staff at the Apple campus in Hollyhill that confirms a case was discovered there.
The email stated: “We’ve been informed by the Health Service Executive [HSE] of a case of rubella at our Cork Hollyhill campus.
“Our employees’ health and wellbeing is our top priority, and we want to ensure all members of the local team are aware of the situation and the resources available to you.
“The possibility of contracting rubella is low, and most cases are mild.
“HSE advice for pregnant women is to check your rubella immunity status with your GP however most likely this has already been checked by your antenatal team.”
