Dairy Queen mall store closed after employee tests positive for COVD-19

DAIRY Queen (Bahamas) announced its mall store was closed on Friday after an employee from that store tested positive for COVID-19.

The company's management revealed the news in a statement, and said that the employee is currently on sick leave and the location will undergo full sanitisation before reopening to customers.

The statement said: “Any employees who may have had contact have been released to self quarantine for the recommended 14-day period, before being assessed and allowed to safely return to work.”

“From day one, our franchise and store teams have followed strict international guidelines for cleaning, sanitising, wearing masks and gloves, and social distancing; along with all protocols provided by The Ministry of Health and Government. We will continue to do so to ensure your optimum safety and that of our team members.”

It has nothing to do with your store's Covid protocol. You can do everything you can, but once your employees leave the store, they must practice protocol. If one employee goes to a party and does not practice protocol , he or she will infect the entire store or even their families and friends. It is not the store's fault.

Agreed, we all need to be responsible and follow the health and safety advice provided by the health offficials.

Problem is that the Ministry of Health only has one protocol. It is based on only testing when people show symtoms. This has been proven scientifically to be imperfect by countries like Germany, South Korea, Iceland and others.

Cayman is COVID free but they have tested 45% of the population. The Bahamas is at 1%.

Massive testing = little or no active COVID (Cayman). Little or no testing = 574+ COVID cases and rising (Bahamas)

This is a societal and economic issue not a medical one. it should be treated like a social issue not a medial one. you can't fight stupid with science. but you can fight stupid with money.
