We understand continuing concern around COVID-19 and we want to assure you our priority continues to be the health, safety and wellbeing of our customers, retailers, team members and the broader community.

We have maintained a range of stringent and protective measures in place across our centre, including:

  • Physical and digital signage reminding customers to keep a safe distance apart
  • Window signage and floor decals provided to retailers to assist with communicating physical distancing measures
  • Floor decals and physical distancing reference points in key areas
  • Increased sanitisation and cleaning of all customer touch points and high traffic areas
  • Hand sanitiser at all entrances
  • Where available, use of our traffic counters and/or digital heat mapping to identify busy zones to help us to actively manage these areas before reaching customer density thresholds
  • Automated alerts on occupancy allowing our team to actively monitor how many customers are in the centre at any time
  • Additional team members in-centre during peak periods, offering hand sanitiser and reminding customers of distancing guidelines
  • Automated, regular public announcements centre-wide, communicating distancing expectations
  • Security officers, in high visibility vests, are monitoring our centres, together with supporting local police to enforce social distancing requirements as appropriate
  • Zero tolerance on anti-social or disrespectful behaviour
  • Best practice guidance and support, such as our Retailer Handbook, to help all our retailers operate safely

 

We are continuing to monitor and act upon the advice and recommendations of our federal and state health departments.
