The second team member was a close contact of the first colleague and had herself tested on Monday, 07 December 2020 as a precaution. We were also formally advised today of her positive test result for Covid-19.
These team members had no close contacts.
A third team member, working as a Cashier, has also tested positive for Covid-19. Her last day at work was yesterday – Tuesday, 08 December 2020. Our colleague felt unwell towards the end of her shift. She consequently had herself tested today (Wednesday, 09 December 2020) and we have recieved informal confirmation this evening that she has tested positive for Covid-19. In the interest of transparency, we are letting you know about these developments and how we have already addressed them.
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 Monday, 07 December 2020 and 08 December 2020 respectively – as part of our daily precautionary protocols in this store. 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 colleagues well and look forward to welcoming them, and the rest of the team, back to the store.
As we have followed all required hygiene protocols – our own, as well as the regulations as set out by government, Food Lover’s Market Knsyna is open and we look forward to welcoming you back to store.
