21 June 2020 – We have today been advised that a colleague, who is a security team member located at the exit of the store at Food Lover’s Market Mossel Bay, has tested positive for COVID-19 – we were advised of this telephonically by a medical professional. We have decided to activate the protocols while we wait for the formal documentation of a positive test result to be presented.
All employees that had direct contact with the affected team member will be identified and instructed to self-quarantine for the remaining period of the 14-days since the last contact with their colleague and will be monitored for any symptoms of COVID-19.
The store will be deep cleaned and sanitised by a professional cleaning company this evening – 21 June 2020. As a further precaution, for the safety of our customers and colleagues, we will open tomorrow morning with an entirely new team.
We will continue our practice of screening our colleagues on arrival at work daily and during the day. We wish the affected member of our team well and look forward to his return to work, along with the rest of our team.
Food Lover’s Market Mossel Bay will be open for trade tomorrow morning and will practice all COVID-19 hygiene procedures – including social distancing, wearing masks and sanitising. We look forward to welcoming you to our store for your next shop.
