Ballito Covid-19 News
2nd Jul 2020
02 July 2020 – A team member, who works as a cashier at Food Lover’s Market Ballito, has tested positive for Covid-19. Our colleague was last in the store on Tuesday, 30 June 2020 – two days ago. This team member was referred for testing as she was a close contact of a family member who tested positive. We were made aware of the positive test result today.
All employees that had direct contact with the team member have been instructed to self-quarantine for the remaining period of the 14-days since the last contact with their colleague and are being monitored for any symptoms of COVID-19.
Since referring the team member for testing, we have conducted a deep clean and sanitisation of the store by a professional cleaning company last night – Wednesday, 01 July 2020. All colleagues have been screened throughout this period and have not displayed any symptoms in the time weeks since the affected team member was last in the store.
We wish our affected colleague well and look forward to welcoming her, and the rest of the team, back to the store.
We will continue our practice of screening our team members on arrival at work daily and during the day. We will also continue to follow all hygiene protocols – including sanitising hands and surfaces, practising social distancing and wearing masks. We look forward to welcoming you back to the Food Lover’s Market Ballito store.
