12 January 2021 – A team member, who works as a manager in the Butchery department at Food Lover’s Market Longbeach, has tested positive for Covid-19. His last day at work was on Wednesday, 06 January 2021 – six days ago. This team member was screened as part of our daily wellness checks and sent home. He consequently had himself tested on Monday, 11 January 2021. We were formally advised today of the positive test result.

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 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, 11 January 2021 – after we were advised that our colleague was tested for Covid-19. 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.

As we have followed all required hygiene protocols – our own, as well as the regulations as set out by government, Food Lover’s Market Longbeach is open and we look forward to welcoming you back to store.
