Davis Wright Tremaine has closed its Seattle and Bellevue, Washington, offices after a firm legal assistant died Thursday. Lisa Carney, 60, left work Tuesday with flu-like symptoms, worked remotely Wednesday and was found dead in her home the following day, the firm said Friday.

There has been no confirmation that Carney was infected with COVID-19. The firm says it is still waiting for a medical examiner to provide more information. Davis Wright announced Friday that it is immediately closing its Seattle and Bellevue offices. It is also asking its Bellevue employees to follow CDC guidelines and self-quarantine.
