Grill'd deep cleans Highpoint store after staff member tests positive for COVID-19

Other store employees were also advised to self-isolate at home.

A staff member at Grill’d’s Highpoint Shopping Centre store in VIC has tested positive for COVID-19, the restaurant chain confirmed in a statement.

“What we can confirm is that the staff member last worked on Saturday 13 June. We understand they were tested on Wednesday and received confirmation of a positive test on the morning of Saturday 20 June, when they informed us,” the statement read.

Grill’d said it “immediately informed” the Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) COVID-19 hotline about the situation and told all ten staff who worked the same shift to self-isolate at home.

“Despite DHHS advising of a relatively low risk due to the timeline, we took the decision to undertake a deep clean of the store on the Saturday night in line with our own strict protocols,” the statement added.

“We’re continuing to work closely with DHHS to support any contact tracing efforts and to ensure the health and safety of all our staff and customers.”
