A team member has tested positive for Covid-19 at the Pinehurst store. Our colleague was last in the store on 03 May 2020 and works in the Admin department. We were made aware of the positive test result late this afternoon.
Subsequent to our colleague being initially tested we conducted a deep clean of the store by a professional cleaning company.
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 14-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.
We have also informed the National Institute of Communicable Diseases (NICD) and the Department of Health of the positive case.
The store will open tomorrow with a changed complement of staff and we will continue our practice of screening our team members on arrival at work daily and during the day.
We wish our affected colleague well and look forward to welcoming her back.
