On Friday it became known that in less than a week no fewer than ten positive corona infections had emerged in the Kuurn branch of Colruyt. The store then decided to put all 70 employees in home quarantine and to organize a large-scale test round. The results of those tests are now known. “In addition to the ten employees who already tested positive beforehand, we ensured that more than 100 employees could have themselves tested immediately,” says press officer Yana Morren of the Colruyt Group. “Of these, another 14 employees tested positive. These people do not show any symptoms.” The 100 people who had themselves tested extra were, in addition to permanent employees of the store, also interim workers, job students and other employees of the Colruyt Group who had assisted in the store. . “It is important to underline that all our employees are in good health,” emphasizes Yana Morren. “There is no reason to panic. For a long time, there was no or insufficient testing capacity in Belgium. There is still insufficient testing capacity to test everyone, but more tests are now taking place. More infections are therefore diagnosed without having symptoms. “Still, according to the press officer, the Colruyt Group is taking a lot of measures to minimize the risk of contamination. “We must all remain vigilant and act quickly, all of us, employees and customers. Our employees have all been wearing – for the time being – a mandatory mask on the work floor. We have therefore acted very quickly and decisively. Precisely because the health and the well-being of our employees, along with that of our customers, is our absolute priority. ”
