Physical distancing when in our centres

We recognise the critical importance of physical distancing. To help our community maintain physical distancing while in our centres we have installed additional signage, are working with our retailers to provide appropriate space for customer queues and have implemented signage at gathering points, including at our vertical transport locations, entry/exits and car parks, for guidance around effective social distancing in these areas.  

Each retailer also has signage to support this by communicating how many patrons they can accommodate in their space, given any current restrictions. We ask that you assist by always following all signage and directions when shopping in centre and being mindful of others around you.

 

Safety and Preventative Measures at Mirvac Retail Centres

The health, safety and wellbeing of our customers, retail partners, employees and our community is our highest mission.

 

In response to the COVID-19 pandemic and to keep our community safe, we implemented significant precautionary cleaning, hygiene and sanitising practices at the onset of the pandemic.

 

In addition to our existing rigorous cleaning and sanitising practices, we are taking additional measures which include but are not limited to:

- Increasing the frequency and intensity of our cleaning efforts of all commonly touched surfaces including seating, doors, lift controls, food courts, and amenities.

- Dettol gel sanitisation at convenient locations including entrances and exits.

- Actively encouraging the practice of good hygiene and preventative measures throughout the centre.

- Requiring all service providers to confirm they have not travelled overseas or been in contact with a confirmed case of COVID-19 in the past 14 days.

- Queuing and crowd management in our food courts during busy times

- Increased staff presence with blue COVIDSafe vests worn by staff to easily allow you to find help or assistance

- Increased hand sanitiser stations at car park pay stations and antibacterial and microbial silver-ionised safety film on all ticket machines and pay stations

- Introducing a contactless customer experience service and our Customer Support Centre which is contactable via phone, email, social media or SMS for extended hours every day of the week. 

 

We also continue to ensure we follow the latest advice and regulations from the Australian and State Governments as the situation unfolds.

Community Update

In line with government guidelines the current Stay-at-Home order for Greater Sydney, including Blue Mountains, Central Coast, Wollongong and Shellharbour will remain in place at least until 11:59PM on Friday 30 July 2021.

While our centre will remain open for essential shopping and services, a number of our retailers will remain closed.

We ask all of our community to please comply with Government requirements and wear a mask at all times whilst visiting and shopping in our centre. We also ask that you please check in using the Service NSW QR Check In app upon entering and remember to check out upon exiting the centre.

To confirm which stores are open and their opening hours, we recommend you call and check with individual stores as trading hours may vary during this time.

This is the latest measure taken to protect our community, adding to the significant additional precautionary cleaning, hygiene and sanitising practices in place in our centre since early March 2020.
