11 August 2020 – A team member, who works in the Butchery department at Food Lover’s Market Menlyn, has tested positive for Covid-19. She was last in the store on Wednesday, 29 July 2020 – thirteen days ago. Our colleague called in to let us know that she was feeling unwell and was consequently tested on Thursday, 30 July 2020. We were made aware of the positive test result today.

All employees that had direct contact with the team member have been instructed to self-quarantine for the remaining period of the 14-days since the last contact with their colleague and are being monitored for any symptoms of COVID-19.

Since referring the team member for testing, we have conducted a deep clean and sanitization of the store by a professional cleaning company on Wednesday, 29 July 2020 – on the day our colleague was last in the store. 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 her, 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. We will also continue to follow all hygiene protocols – including sanitizing hands and surfaces, practicing social distancing, and wearing masks. We look forward to welcoming you back to the Food Lover’s Market Menlyn store.
