Hermanus Covid-19 News
2nd Jan 2021
02 January 2021 – A team member, who works in the Fruit and Veg department at Food Lover’s Market Hermanus, has tested positive for Covid-19. Her last day at work was on Wednesday, 30 December 2020 – three days ago. This team member was feeling unwell and consequently had herself tested for Covid-19 on Thursday, 31 December 2020. We were formally advised today of the positive test result.
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 the 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 Thursday, 31 December 2020 – on the day our colleague had herself tested for Covid-19. All colleagues have been screened throughout this period and have not displayed any symptoms in the time 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, as well as following all hygiene protocols – including sanitising hands and surfaces, practising social distancing and wearing masks.
As we have followed all required hygiene protocols – our own, as well as the regulations as set out by the government, Food Lover’s Market Hermanus is open and we look forward to welcoming you back to store.
