Staff members at The Range test positive for coronavirus

The Range have issued a statement after two staff members at the company’s Grimsby branch tested positive for coronavirus.

A spokesperson at the store on Victoria Street North says that the affected team members have now begun the recommended 14-day self-isolation period.

It was confirmed that the virus was contracted outside of the shop, but the firm have not disclosed whether they have since been into contact with customers or other members of staff.

The statement reads:

“We are able to confirm that it is only two members of staff that have the virus.

“Both separate cases and were contracted from outside of work.

“During these concerning times, we have taken all measures possible in every store to keep our staff and customers safe.

“Following government guidelines, we encourage social distancing at all times, have included protective screens at check-out, and require the mandatory wearing of face-masks unless a health condition makes a staff member or customer exempt from this.

“Any staff showing symptoms, testing positive for coronavirus or who have been contacted by the NHS Track and Trace system will isolate for the recommended time allotted by the government.

“We would like to reassure our customers that our stores are safe and kept at a high standard at all times.”

The update comes just a few days after North East Lincolnshire Council issued a plea to consumers, urging them to wear face masks and act responsibly when visiting public spaces.
