    • Alert for two Woolworths stores after employee and customer tested positive
    • Case shopped at Malvern store in Melbourne’s inner south-east on October 6

    Two popular Woolworths stores in Melbourne are on high alert after an employee and customer tested positive to coronavirus.

    Western Sydney residents are also urged to watch for symptoms after a positive case visited several locations while infectious, including a popular Westfield and two tutoring centres.

    Woolworths confirmed an infected customer attended the Malvern store in Melbourne’s inner south-east on October 6.

    The supermarket giant added a worker from its QV Melbourne store in the CBD is also self-isolating after they also tested positive.

    ‘The team member last worked at Woolworths QV, Melbourne on Tuesday October 6 and Wednesday October 7,’ a Woolworths statement read.

    ‘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.’

    Any shoppers who attended either store on those dates are urged to contact health authorities and get tested if symptoms develop in the next two weeks, regardless of how mild.  

    Both stores will undergo a deep clean.

    ‘As a food retailer, we already have very high standards of cleaning and hygiene in place,’ Woolworths added.

    ‘While the risk of transmission to customers and team members is low, the safety and wellbeing of the local community is our priority.’ 

    Victoria recorded seven new cases on Wednesday, which ended six consecutive days of double figures.

    Melbourne’s rolling case average dropped from 10 to 9.6.

    Five more deaths were recorded, the highest since September 29, taking fatalities to 816 and the national total to 904.

    A shopper attended Westfield Mount Druitt on Monday (October 12) between 11.30am and 1pm while infectious.

    Anyone who was at the shopping centre between those times is considered a casual contact and urged by NSW Health to monitor for symptoms and get tested. 

    A case also attended Al-Jabr – A Different Class of Mathematics in Auburn between 4.30pm and 8.45pm on October 8, and between 10am and 4.30pm on Sunday (October 11).

    Anyone who attended either tutoring centre at the listed times is considered a close contact of the case and are ordered to seek testing and self-isolate for two weeks immediately.
