Morgan Stanley’s Chief Executive Officer James Gorman said he has fully recovered from the illness caused by COVID-19, according to a video that was sent to the bank’s employees on the 9th of April.

Gorman released a 10-minute video to staff by email in which he said he had tested positive for coronavirus and had been fully cleared by doctors more than a week ago.


Gorman is self-isolating

Gorman is currently undergoing self-isolation at home and working remotely, according to the video.

A Morgan Stanley spokesman confirmed the contents of the video, adding the development was not considered to be material because Gorman was not incapacitated at any time.

The board of Morgan Stanley was informed when he was confirmed positive for the disease, the spokesman added.

James Gorman held operating committee calls throughout his illness

The bank had not publicly disclosed earlier that Gorman had tested positive for the respiratory illness.

Gorman said in the video he began experiencing flu-like sympthoms in mid-March. He later tested positive for the disease, but was able to continue to work from home as he was not incapacitated, he said.

The bank held daily operating committee calls since the positive coronavirus test and Gorman led every call, the spokesman added.
