A team member, who works in the Hot Foods department at Food Lover’s Market Menlyn, has tested positive for Covid-19. Her last day at work was on Friday, 08 January 2021 – six days ago. This team member called in sick to let us know that she is feeling unwell. She consequently had herself tested on Monday, 11 January 2021. 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 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 Saturday, 09 January 2021 – when we were advised that our colleague is feeling unwell. 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 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 Menlyn is open and we look forward to welcoming you back to store.
