A professional cleaning company conducted a deep clean and sanitisation of the store on Saturday, 05 December 2020, Sunday, 06 December 2020 and Monday, 07 December 2020 respectively – after our colleagues were last at work. 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 colleagues well and look forward to welcoming them 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 Knysna is open and we look forward to welcoming you back to the store.
