Some employees of the World Bank in Washington are being asked to work from home after one of their colleagues was preliminarily diagnosed with swine flu.

The bank said Thursday that the man is believed to have been exposed to the illness while traveling in Mexico for business from April 13 to 18. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention will do a second test to confirm the diagnosis.

The man has been treated by a doctor and has made a full recovery.

The bank is calling other employees who came in close contact with the man and asking them to work from home, though it did not say how many employees might be affected.
