The Prahran Market has been closed for deep cleaning today after it was visited by COVID-positive person on Saturday morning.

The infected person visited Pete n Rosie’s Deli, Q le Baker, Prahran Seafoods, John Cester’s Poultry and Game, Gary’s Quality Meats, Reliable Fruit and Veg and Market Lane Coffee.

The market has been declared a Tier 1 exposure site between 9.40am and 11.15am on Saturday, July 17.

Chairperson of the Prahran Market board, Samantha Winter, says there are hopes the market will be downgraded to a Tier 2 site after the Health Department examines the COVID-positive shopper’s movements.

“They … classified, as a precautionary measure to start with, the market as a Tier 1 site while they’re undertaking further investigation,” she told Neil Mitchell.

“They’re hoping to understand using our CCTV how the shopper actually went to through the market … as to whether we stay as Tier 1 or whether we might be downgraded back to a Tier 2.”

All staff who were at the market during the exposure period been told to get tested and quarantine for 14 days.

Ms Winter says even if the market remains a Tier 1 site, it won’t remain closed for a fortnight.

“Hopefully some of the traders have alternative staff so once the market deep clean has happened we should be able to open again with whoever is available,” she said.
