An update on our retailers
On 8 May 2020, the Australian Government outlined a 3-step plan to gradually ease restrictions introduced at the end of March 2020; and to re-open a COVID-Safe Australia and economy.
Stage 1 will focus on carefully reopening the economy and giving Australians opportunities to return to work and social activities, including gatherings of up to 10 people, up to 5 visitors in the family home, some local and regional travel and reopening restaurants, cafes and shopping.
So from Friday 20 May 2020, we will start to see more of our retailers reopen to trade. Some of our retailers have started to reopen voluntarily, and the changes affects our Cafes and Restaurants who are now able to serve up to 10 customers at a time, in addition to any takeaway they may offer.
While it is encouraging that restrictions are starting to be eased, as a community we still have a way to go and we continue to follow Government and Health Department advice. We ask for the ongoing support of our community in maintaining social distancing and supporting our hygiene standards, whilst we continue to work collaboratively with our retailers supporting them in their reopening plans. Together, we can help stop the spread.
This continues to be a tough time for all our customers, retailers and employees within our community, across Australia and the world, but the health, safety and well-being of our community and our loved ones is most important. Things are changing every day, so let’s stay calm, safe and look after each other.
