Woolworths Southland

7 August 2020

A team member at our Woolworths Southland supermarket has tested positive for the Coronavirus (COVID-19) and is self-isolating.

The team member last worked at Woolworths Southland on Friday July 31. We’re making contact with our team members and providing our full support to those required to self-isolate in line with advice from the health authorities.

As a food retailer, we already have very high standards of cleaning and hygiene in place. As an extra precautionary measure we have undertaken an additional deep clean of the store.

While the risk of transmission to customers and team members is low, the safety and wellbeing of the local community is our priority. Customers and team members should be assured they can continue to safely shop and work at our Southland store.

Any customers who shopped in our Southland store on Friday July 31 and feel unwell in the next two weeks should make contact with the health authorities.

For more information on COVID-19 please call the National Coronavirus Health Information Line on 1800 020 080.
