Coronavirus has been reported to an IKEA warehouse in west Sydney.
After working three consecutive morning shifts, an employee at the IKEA Distribution Center in Marsden Park had a positive test result.
According to NSW Health they were infectious while at work.
“A staff member who works in the warehouse at IKEA Distribution Centre, Marsden Park is now a confirmed case of the coronavirus,” a letter staff seen by 7NEWS.com.au stated.
“The staff member was infectious at work on the morning shift on the 6th, 7th and 8th of July 2020.”
An IKEA Australia spokesperson confirmed the case to 7NEWS.com.au and said the warehouse wasn’t needed to close.
“We were informed that a co-worker who works in the IKEA Australia DC/CDC located in Marsden Park, tested positive for COVID-19 on 13 July 2020,” the spokesperson said.
“They last worked at the DC/CDC on Wednesday 8 July. The source of their infection was not an IKEA unit.”
