17/08 Media statement regarding Auckland community Covid-19 case

To be attributed to Kiri Hannifin, Countdown’s General Manager of Corporate Affairs, Safety and Sustainability.

We’re in the process of preparing our stores for a change in alert level protocols, and ask customers to keep calm and kind while we do this. We know this is unnerving news for everyone, but we are well-practiced at shopping safely during alert level changes and we can do it again.

We’d ask customers to wear a mask when you’re shopping in our stores as an extra precaution, and use the contact tracing app as you come in.

At the moment all of our stores are open and we will have physical distancing measures in place, as well as extra cleaning and hygiene practices on top of what we do normally.
