Alert after Bunnings staff member tests positive for coronavirus after working THREE shifts in busy Sydney hardware store while infected

A staff member at Bunnings in Campbelltown has tested positive for COVID-19, with customers told to look out for symptoms.

The employee worked at the store on August 4 from 11am to 9pm, August 5 from 8am to 4pm and August 6 from 1pm to 3pm.

He reportedly wore a mask and kept socially distanced, but NSW Health has warned any customers who were at Bunnings at this time to monitor for symptoms.  

If any feel slightly unwell, they should isolate immediately and seek urgent testing. 

Debbie Poole, Bunnings Chief Operating Officer, said in a statement: ‘The team member last worked in store on Thursday and, importantly, was wearing a face mask – as all our Campbelltown team have been since July 25. 

‘The health and safety of our team members and customers is our absolute focus and we’ve got incredibly comprehensive protocols for hygiene and cleaning during COVID-19 across our whole store network developed in conjunction with advice from health authorities.

‘The store has undergone two deep cleans using disinfectants since the team member last worked in addition to the routine cleaning that occurs each day. 

‘And, as a precaution we’re completing an additional deep clean.’
