Food Lover’s Market Mossel Bay COVID-19 News
6th Jun 2020
06 June 2020 – A team member, who works in the butchery department at Food Lover’s Market Mossel Bay, was screened as part of our daily wellness checks and was consequently referred to be tested on 25 May 2020 – 12 days ago. We were informally advised that she has tested positive for COVID-19 on 03 June 2020. Although we have not received a certification from a medical authority, we decided to activate the protocols we have in place in the event of a positive test result.
All team members 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 our affected colleague was in-store last, the store has been deep cleaned and sanitised by a professional cleaning company twice – on 25 May 2020 and 03 June 2020 respectively. We have adopted this proactive approach to protecting our team and customers.
We will continue our practice of screening our colleagues on arrival at work daily and during the day. We wish our affected colleague well and look forward to her returning to work, along with the rest of our team.
Food Lover’s Market Mossel Bay is open and practising all COVID-19 hygiene procedures – including social distancing, wearing masks and sanitising. We look forward to welcoming you to our store for your next shop.
