Update: Further to our earlier statement, two additional team members have tested positive for Covid-19. The first team member works in the receiving area of the store. She was sent home as a precaution because she was a close contact of a family member who tested positive. Her last day at work was on Monday, 06 July 2020 – ten days ago – and she was tested on Friday, 10 July 2020 – six days ago.

The second team member works in the Admin department. She was screened and sent home as she feeling unwell. Her last day at work was on Wednesday, 08 July 2020 – eight days ago and she was consequently tested on the same day.

A deep clean and sanitation of the store was conducted by a professional cleaning company on Wednesday, 08 July 2020 – when we were advised that our colleague in the Admin department has been tested.

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 14-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.

We wish our affected colleagues well and look forward to welcoming them, and the rest of the team, 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 Kempton Park is open and we look forward to welcoming you back to store.
