20 percent of Countdown staff are currently isolating - that's comes out to roughly 1000 workers. 

The two Auckland distribution centres are down to 50 percent staff, leading to bare shelves across grocery stores.  

Countdown says it's continuing to recruit temporary team members where it can. 

Ben Peterson, First Union retail organiser joined Kate Hawkesby.
