ALDI has issued a coronavirus warning for three Sydney stores. 

The supermarket confirmed that customers who tested positive for the deadly virus had visited three of their locations.

Customers who visited ALDI at Erskine Park, in Sydney’s west, on August 7 and 8 are being asked to closely monitor their health and get tested if symptoms occur.

Shoppers who visited the Bonnyrigg store on August 11 or the Fairfield West location on August 16 are also being asked to do the same.

ALDI says the three locations have been deep cleaned and have further said they are providing “full support” to team members required to self-isolate, in line with advice from NSW Health.

“Customers should be assured that they can continue to shop safely,” an ALDI spokesperson said on their website.

ALDI recently received criticism for continuing to run it’s popular special buys promotion, which often sees crowds of people gathering to get some limited purchases for themselves.

Customers have said that social distancing is almost impossible under the circumstances.

“While our store teams do their best to enforce customer flows, such as limiting the number of shoppers in our stores, we also ask our customers to remember to keep at least 1.5 metres apart from each other at all times, both in and outside of our stores,” an ALDI spokesperson told Yahoo Finance on Thursday.

“We ask everyone to show cooperation, patience and understanding when shopping at ALDI.”
