01/09 Media statement on Countdown locations of interest

Please attribute to Kiri Hannifin, Countdown's General Manager Corporate Affairs, Safety and Sustainability: 

As we’ve done with all of our stores that have been locations of interest, we’re following our usual health and safety procedures, including deep cleaning any stores that require it. This is in addition to the thorough cleaning that is undertaken during each day, which has been further increased since the Alert Level 4 restrictions have been in place.

The Countdown Ponsonby and Countdown Warkworth visits were the only ones we were unaware of prior to this afternoon’s list being released. All the other impacted stores have already been deep cleaned since these visits. Our Warkworth store is currently closed for cleaning and we hope to reopen the store later this evening. We will be closing Ponsonby shortly to carry out a deep clean there as well.

We’ll also continue to work closely with the relevant health authorities and follow their guidance on which of our team, if any, are required to isolate and get tested.
