COVID 19 EXPOSURE
A staff member of the Co-op has tested positive for COVID-19 after a rapid antigen test at the onset of symptoms on Thursday evening 6th January. This staff member was wearing a mask at all times during their shifts.
The staff member worked between 1:45pm and 6:00pm on Wednesday 5th January and 12:00pm and 6:00pm on Thursday 6th January. It is possible that the staff member was contagious during these shifts despite being asymptomatic at that time.
Members and customers who were at the main shop during these times are advised to use the following link to assess their exposure and follow any recommendations given by NSW Health.
The Co-op site will be cleaned according to recommendations prior to reopening for normal trading. We anticipate the main shop being closed for a few hours on Friday morning 7th January to accommodate this. We apologize if this causes you any inconvenience.
We would like to take this opportunity to reinforce the following reminders to our members and customers:
- Use our call & collect service if you wish to avoid public places. Call 47825890 between 10:00am and 3:00pm and speak to the shop for contactless collection the same day
- Monitor your symptoms and if you are unwell, stay home, rest and consider if you need to be tested. Read more about symptoms here

We thank you for your ongoing support and hope to see you in the shop soon.
