Bahrain: Alosra Saar Reopens Following Coronavirus Scare
A popular supermarket chain that was forced to close one of its outlets due to a suspected case of coronavirus (COVID-19) with one of its staff members has reopened the branch.
Management of Alosa Supermarket announced yesterday on social media that the team member expected to have been infected with the coronavirus has tested negative. Nonetheless, the team member will still be self-isolating over a recommended period.
In light of this, Alosra’s Najibi Centre branch has reopened following its temporary closure on Tuesday as a precautionary measure. The outlet has also been “professionally disinfected and sanitised by a certified service provider and concerned authorities,” the chain said on its online post.
“We are happy to report that the team member in question tested negative (not infected) for COVID-19,” it said. “As a precaution, the team member will be spending the recommended time in self-isolation.”
It continued: “Our Alosra Najibi Centre outlet has since been professionally disinfected and sanitised by a certified service provider and concerned authorities. We are open as normal from today onwards.
