15th Jul 2020
15 July 2020 – Three of our colleagues have tested positive for Covid-19 at the Food Lover’s Comaro store and we have been advised of their positive test results yesterday. In the interest of transparency, we have let you know about this development and how we have already addressed it.
The first team member, who works in the Hot Foods department at Food Lover’s Market Comaro was last at work sixteen days ago – on Monday, 29 June 2020. This team member was a close contact of a family member who tested positive. She was sent home and consequently referred for testing.
The second team member – working in the Fruit and Veg department – was last in the store on Friday, 26 June 2020 – nineteen days ago. This team member was screened as part of our daily wellness checks and was sent home and he consequently had himself tested.
The third team member works in the Bakery department and was last in the store on Saturday, 27 June 2020 – eighteen days ago. This team member was also screened as part of our daily wellness checks, sent home and was consequently tested.
Our colleagues do not have close contacts at work as they have not been at the store in more than fourteen days.
A professional cleaning company conducted a deep clean and sanitisation of the store on Friday, 03 July 2020 – eleven days ago. 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.
Our three affected colleagues will be back in store today and we look forward to welcoming them back.
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, practising 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 Comaro is open and we look forward to welcoming you back to store.
