Hermanus Covid-19 News

3rd Jan 2021

03 January 2021 – A team member, who works as a Nightshift Butchery Manager at Food Lover’s Market Hermanus, has tested positive for Covid-19. Her last day at work was on Monday, 28 December 2020 – six days ago. This team member was a close contact of an individual who tested positive for Covid-19. She consequently had herself tested on Wednesday, 30 December 2020. We were formally advised today of the positive test result.

This team member had one close contact, who has been identified and instructed to self-quarantine for the remaining period of the 10-days since the last contact with a said 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 – after we were advised that our colleague has been 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 members were last in the store.

We wish our affected colleague well and look forward to welcoming her, and our other colleague, back to the store.

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.
