The Shoprite Group says its Checkers Store in Muizenberg in the South Peninsula in Cape Town has been closed due to a positive case of Covid-19.
The group says a professional decontamination company has been brought in to sanitise and deep clean the store. An employee screening programme has also been
put in place.
Shoprite says where necessary, those in close contact with the positive case are required to self-quarantine for 14 days.
The store will be reopened after consultations with the Western Cape Health Department.
Five people including a three-year-old boy, have died in a fire at a house in Crossroads, Cape Town.
The city's Fire and Rescue spokesperson Jermaine Carelse says firefighters found a double-storey house on fire when they arrived on the scene. He says the incident occurred late last night.
Carelse says, "A search of the property led to the discovery of the bodies of a man, a woman and a 3-year-old boy in the garage and another two bodies of a man and a woman
in the bedroom on the ground floor.
The fire was extinguished and the entire area was cordoned off by SAPS."
