The Bayside Mall Checkers in Tableview has temporarily closed its doors after a staff member tested positive for the coronavirus.

In a statement, Shoprite Holdings explained that the store has now been closed and a professional decontamination company will be brought in to sanitise and deep clean the store. The Department of Health and National Institute for Communicable Diseases has been informed of the new case.

“An employee screening programme supported by the company’s mobile clinic has immediately been put into place,” said the company. “Those who had close contact with the infected person are now self-quarantining for 14 days.”

The tableview-based store will reopen once the Department of Health has given authorisation.
