Dear FAM,

We are sad to inform you that one of our major suppliers has confirmed COVID-19 cases.

As a result, there will be disruptions to our ready-to-eat food supply for the next seven (7) days. Some affected items would be bentos, onigiris, sandwiches and baked goods (breads).

While FamilyMart stores remain open according to the revised operational hours during the MCO period, the wellbeing of our customers, staff, and those at our suppliers is of utmost importance to us.

FamilyMart Supplier COVID-19 Cases : What’s The Risk?

There has been no evidence so far that SARS-CoV-2 spreads through fomites. So there is no risk in purchasing ready-to-eat foods from FamilyMart.

Since no FamilyMart employees are affected, there is also no risk in purchasing necessities from their stores.

Just make sure you wear a face mask in public at all times, as they greatly reduce the risk of infection.

You should also maintain good hand hygiene by cleaning with soap and water, or a hand sanitiser.
