Staff at the offices in Lords Walk expressed concern over their working conditions after three members of staff went off sick with suspected coronavirus symptoms.
Last week, union members were issued with advice about their rights as employees if they felt their working conditions were unsafe.
A spokesman for the DWP confirmed the building was closed for a deep clean on Tuesday but could not confirm whether there had been a confirmed case of coronavirus in the building.
