A team member, who was temporarily employed for two days at Food Lover’s Market Parklands, has tested positive for Covid-19. Our colleague was assisting us as a cashier and was last in the store on 03 May 2020 – 15 days ago. This team member was screened as part of our daily wellness checks and was consequently referred to be tested. We were made aware of the positive test result late this afternoon.
Since referring the team member for testing, we have conducted a deep clean of the store by a professional cleaning company. All colleagues have been screened throughout this period and have not displayed any symptoms in the two weeks since the affected team member was last in the store. We wish our affected colleague well and look forward to welcoming her back.
We will continue our practice of screening our team members on arrival at work daily and during the day. In the interest of transparency, we have let you know about this development and how we have already addressed it.
We want to assure you that Food Lover’s Market Parklands is open, practising all COVID-19 hygiene procedures and we look forward to welcoming you to our store for your next shop.
