West Coast Mall Covid-19 News
6th Jan 2021
06 January 2021 – A team member, who works in the Cash Office at Food Lover’s Market West Coast Mall has tested positive for Covid-19. Her last day at work was on Monday, 04 January 2021 – two days ago. This team member was screened as part of our daily wellness checks and sent home. She consequently had herself tested on the same day – Monday, 04 January 2021. We were informally advised today of the positive test result. 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 will conduct a deep clean and sanitization of the store this evening (Wednesday, 06 January 2021). We will open the store tomorrow morning, once we are completely satisfied that all hygiene protocols have been completed. 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 our other colleagues, 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 sanitizing hands and surfaces, practicing social distancing and wearing masks.
Food Lover’s Market West Coast Mall will be open for business tomorrow morning and we look forward to welcoming you back to store.
