A second team member, who works in the Bakery at Food Lover’s Market Bruma, has tested positive for Covid-19. His last day at work was on Wednesday, 06 January 2021 – five days ago. This team member called in to let us know that he is feeling unwell. He consequently had himself tested on Sunday, 10 January 2021. We were informally advised today of the positive test result. In the interest of transparency we are letting you know about these developments and how we have already addressed it.
All team members that were in close contact with this colleague have been identified and have been instructed to self-quarantine for the remaining period of the 10-days since last contact with their colleague. They are being monitored for symptoms of COVID-19 and will only return to the store once we are satisfied that they have not contracted the virus.
A professional cleaning company conducted a deep clean and sanitisation of the store on Friday, 08 January 2021 – after our colleagues were last at work. All colleagues have been screened throughout this period and have not displayed any symptoms in the time since the affected team members were last in the store.
We wish our affected colleague well and look forward to welcoming them, and our other colleagues, back to the store.
We will continue our practice of screening our team members on arrival at work daily and during the day, as well as following all hygiene protocols – including sanitising hands and surfaces, practicing social distancing and wearing masks.
As we have followed all required hygiene protocols – our own, as well as the regulations as set out by government, Food Lover’s Market Bruma is open and we look forward to welcoming you back to store.
