Charlies said it responded immediately after a member of staff tested positive for Covid-19 at its Welshpool distribution centre at the weekend.

All of its 80 staff at the Offa’s Dyke Business Park facility were tested on Monday and Tuesday with a further three staff testing positive that are asymptomatic.

“We had a confirmed case at the weekend and have since tested all other employees currently working in the Distribution Centre,” said Rebecca Lloyd, Director.

“This unfortunately provided three further positive results for individuals that are asymptomatic. In total this is four positive cases out of a workforce of over 80 individuals.

“All positive cases and close contacts are isolating and following all government guidance.

“This is the first case of Covid-19 in the Distribution Centre since the outbreak last March and we are taking it very seriously and informed Environmental Health immediately.

“As well as all employees being tested Monday and Tuesday this week, they will be tested again on Thursday and Friday.

“We have strong measures in place to prevent the spread of Covid-19 and have had since last March, as always we will be continuing to review and enforce these.”
