Discovery Communications employees are slowly trying to find their way back to normalcy.
THR reported that Discovery’s building was open for business Thursday, a day after a hostage crisis erupted at the Silver Spring, Maryland, edifice, but Discovery spokeswoman Tammy Shea adds that employees have been encouraged to use the holiday weekend as a time for healing.
“Right now we are wholly focused on the recovery and healing of our employees with counselors available, and we’ve told them to take today through the holiday weekend off to focus on that and to be with their families,” she told CNN. “We will get back in the saddle on Tuesday, and we’ll still have counselors on hand to help everyone recover.”
