Durban - A staff member at the Oxford Freshmarket Bluff store has tested positive for the coronavirus, the supermarket announced on Wednesday. 

Taking to the group's Facebook page on Wednesday, Brett Latimer retail owner of Oxford Freshmarket, said the staffer came to work with a cold and did not look well. 

"Immediately, the supervisor informed the manager and the manager took her off the till and sent her to hospital where she was tested," he said.

Latimer said on Wednesday, they were informed by telephone, that the woman had tested positive for Covid-19.

He said they were unsure as to where the woman contracted coronavirus. 

"We are taking this very seriously. We have invited the Department of Health to test all the remaining staff at the store," he said. 

Latimer said they have taken extra precaution to have stores fogged every Sunday in a bid to curb the spread of the coronavirus. 

He said they were awaiting further instruction from the Department of Health.
