Moffett Retail Park Covid-19 News
20th Nov 2020
20 November 2020 – A team member, who works as Fruit and Veg Supervisor at Food Lover’s Market Moffett Retail Park, has tested positive for Covid-19. Her last day at work was on Thursday, 12 November – eight days ago. This team member called in sick as she wasn’t feeling well and consequently had herself tested on Friday, 13 November 2020. We were formally advised of the positive test result on Wednesday, 18 November 2020.
A second team member, working as a Hot Foods Supervisor, has also tested positive for Covid-19. Her last day at work was Tuesday, 10 November – ten days ago. This team member was screened and sent home, and consequently had herself tested on the same day (10 November 2020). We were informed of the positive test result on Sunday, 15 November 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 these colleagues 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 Friday, 13 November 2020 – after we were advised that our colleagues have been 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 colleagues well and look forward to welcoming them, 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 Moffett Retail Park is open and we look forward to welcoming you back to store.
