24 June 2021 – A team member, who works in the Butchery department at Food Lover’s Market Welkom, has tested positive for Covid-19. Her last day at work was on Wednesday, 23 June 2021 – one day ago. This team member called in to let us know that she was feeling unwell. She consequently had herself tested today – Thursday, 24 June 2021. We were also formally advised of the positive test result today.

This team member has no close contacts.

A professional cleaning company conducted a deep clean and sanitisation of the store early this morning (Thursday, 24 June 2021) – after we were advised that our colleague has 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 members were last in the store.

We wish our affected colleague well and look forward to welcoming her 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 Welkom is open and we look forward to welcoming you back to store.
