27 November 2020 – A team member, who works as a nightshift General Assistant in the Fruit and Veg department at Food Lover’s Market George, has tested positive for Covid-19. His last day at work was on Sunday, 22 November 2020 – five days ago. This team member called in to let us know he is feeling unwell and consequently had himself tested on Tuesday, 24 November 2020. We were formally advised today that he has tested positive for COVID-19.

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 10-days since the 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.

A professional cleaning company conducted a deep clean and sanitisation of the store on Monday, 23 November – after our colleague advised that he was feeling unwell. 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 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, 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 the government, Food Lover’s Market George is open and we look forward to welcoming you back to store.
