Woolworths confirmed on Saturday it had been notified by Queensland Health that one of its Kingaroy employees had tested positive to COVID-19.
“While the Queensland Department of Health has confirmed the risk of transmission to customers and team members is low, the safety and wellbeing of the community is our highest priority,” the spokesperson said.
“We have contacted our store team members and will provide all appropriate support and guidance to them in line with the advice from the health authorities.
“As a food retailer, we already have very high standards of cleaning and hygiene in place, and as an extra precautionary measure, the store had a deep clean overnight.
“Customers and team members should be assured they can continue to shop and work at our Kingaroy supermarket with confidence.
“Any customers shopping in our stores over the past week who become unwell in the next two weeks should contact the Department of Health.”
