Platinum Square Covid-19 News
31st Dec 2020
31 December 2020 – A team member, working as a Butchery Manager at Food Lover’s Market Platinum Square, has tested positive for Covid-19. His last day at work was today – Thursday, 31 December 2020. This team member felt unwell earlier today and consequently had himself tested. We were formally advised of his Covid-19 test results this afternoon.
This colleague had one close contact, and we have instructed this team member to self-quarantine for the remaining period of the 10-days since the last contact with said colleague. This colleague is being monitored for symptoms of COVID-19 and will only return to the store once we are satisfied that this team member has not contracted the virus.
We have closed the store temporarily this afternoon to conduct an immediate deep clean and sanitisation by a professional cleaning company. We will reopen the store tomorrow, once we are completely satisfied that all hygiene protocols have been completed. 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 him, and our other colleague, 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.
Food Lover’s Market Platinum Square will be open for business tomorrow morning, once the deep cleaning has been competed and we look forward to welcoming you back to store.
