JPMorgan Chase CEO Jamie Dimon will not be meeting with government officials this weekend in a region of the US where he’s considered a potential Ebola case, a spokeswoman for the bank said Friday.
“JP Morgan Chase CEO Jamie Dimon will travel to Denver over the weekend for business,” the bank’s spokeswoman Patricia Wexler said in a statement to CNN. “It is our understanding that as a precaution, CDC officials will meet him in Denver as they would anyone visiting the area.”
Dimon, 67, is set to attend a reception on Friday night in Denver at the National Governors Association Winter Meeting. He was scheduled to fly to Miami on Saturday for a dinner with a government official, officials with both the Obama and Trump administrations told CNN.
Wexler declined to name the official. She would not say if Dimon or anyone else has tested positive for Ebola, the deadly virus that sickened thousands of people in West Africa.
When a story first reported Dimon was not flying to Florida, a spokesman for the bank told CNN that Dimon wasn’t feeling well after recently traveling abroad, and Dimon would not travel. Wexler did not immediately respond to a follow-up question about Dimon’s health or whether he has been tested for Ebola.
