From Morning Report, 7:39 am on 9 July 2020

The Countdown supermarket where the latest absconder from managed isolation browsed the health and beauty aisle, bought toothpaste, body wash and razors, and took selfies has just reopened.

The supermarket was closed yesterday for cleaning after the 32-year-old man who tested positive for Covid-19 spent 20 minutes in the store.
