In a release on Saturday, A L Thompson advised that the Health Services Authority had screened their staff for Covid-19 on 14 May, five days before they reopened their George Town store.
The results for approximately 95% of those who were tested revealed that most results were negative but unfortunately, 2 of the 187 people screened have tested positive for the virus.
They assure the public that because they did not permit staff members to return to work until they received negative results, there would not have been contact at A. L. Thompson’s with those who tested positive.
They are asymptomatic and are in isolation at home per HSA protocol. Everyone's well-being is their priority.
