COVID-19 decontamination operations continue in earnest in the Mother City. Places that have been shut down for sanitisation after employees tested positive include supermarkets, churches, pharmacies and warehouses. In the latest incident, a manufacturing site in Epping for pharmaceutical company GlaxoSmithKline was ordered to close temporarily by the Department of Labour after some employees tested positive. Late yesterday, the company was given the green light to open.

Spill Tech's own Sirshen Chetty, based at our Cape Town branch, said their teams had responded to about five requests for assistance per week over the past two weeks.

They had responded to calls from supermarkets, among others. “Our teams are fully equipped to deal with any sanitation needs. They first do a quick risk assessment before deciding on how to execute the operation,” said Chetty.

The provincial Department of Health said it had been in regular contact with five businesses where positive tests had been reported.

“Whenever cases are identified, the store is closed, and close contacts (people who had come into contact with a person who tested positive) are identified and quarantined,” said department spokesperson Mark van der Heever. “The store is cleaned and then reopened.”

Spill Tech’s COVID-19 Decontamination Services allow business environments like these to be sanitised quickly and effectively, allowing employees to return to a safe workplace with minimal disruption and delay.
