Middelburg Covid-19 News
22nd Jun 2021
22 June 2021 – A team member, who works in the Fruit & Veg department at Food Lover’s Market Middelburg, has tested positive for Covid-19. Her last day at work was on Monday, 21 June 2021 – one day ago. This team member was screened as part of our daily wellness checks and sent home. She consequently had herself tested on the same day – Monday, 21 June 2021. We were formally advised of the positive test result today.
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 early this morning (Tuesday, 22 June 2021 )- after we were informed that our colleague went for a Covid-19 test. 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 Middelburg is open and we look forward to welcoming you back to store.
