A West Auckland supermarket has closed for a deep clean after a person visited last week, who was later confirmed to have Covid-19.
The Countdown store in New Lynn’s Lynn Mall closed at about 1pm today for the deep clean, Countdown confirmed on its website.
It had been alerted of the positive case by the Auckland Regional Public Health Service.
The customer had been in the store between 8pm and 8.30pm last Friday, before they tested positive for Covid-19.Advertisement
Countdown says staff and customers are strongly encouraged to wear face masks while in stores.
The visit from a positive Covid-19 case is considered as “low risk” by the health service, Countdown says.
Countdown and the agency have been contacted directly for comment.
