Food Lover’s Market Somerset West COVID-19 News
17th Jun 2020
17 June 2020 – We have been informally advised today that a team member, who works as a cashier at Food Lover’s Market Somerset West, has tested positive for COVID-19. Her last day in the store was 07 June 2020 – ten days ago. Although we have not yet received a certification from a medical authority, we have decided to activate the protocols we have in place in the event of a positive test result.
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.
A professional cleaning company has conducted a deep clean and sanitisation of the store on 10 June 2020 – seven days ago. We have adopted this proactive approach to protecting our team and customers.
We will continue our practice of screening our colleagues on arrival at work daily and during the day. We wish our affected colleague well and look forward to her returning to work, along with the rest of our team.
Food Lover’s Market Somerset West is open and practising all COVID-19 hygiene procedures – including social distancing, wearing masks and sanitising. We look forward to welcoming you to our store for your next shop.
