Menlyn Covid-19 News
11th Dec 2020
A team member, who works in the Hot Foods department at Food Lover’s Market Menlyn, has tested positive for Covid-19. Her last day at work was yesterday – Thursday, 10 December 2020. This team member was screened as part of our daily wellness checks and was sent home. She consequently had herself tested on the same day. We were informally notified of her positive test result for Covid-19 today – Friday, 11 December 2020. In the interest of transparency we are letting you know about these developments and how we have already addressed them.
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 Thursday, 10 December 2020 – when our colleague was sent home and had herself 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 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, 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 Menlyn is open and we look forward to welcoming you back to store.
