This comes after 24 workers also tested positive for the virus at a Dischem in Boksburg.
The Pick n Pay store at Alex Mall has been temporarily closed after two workers tested positive for the coronavirus.
On Monday, Pick n Pay said it had traced those who had been in close contact with the two and they had been sent into self-quarantine.
The store’s management said as a precaution, they had also organised that all of the staff be screened by health practitioners.
Pick n Pay said it was sanitising and deep cleaning the store and that branch would reopen once this process was completed.
This is not the first Pick n Pay store to close its doors because of coronavirus infections.
Last week, the PnP at the Waterstone Village, in Somerset West, was temporarily closed after a staffer tested positive for COVID-19.
