The Centre continues to take additional cleaning precautions to ensure that Tweed Mall remains a safe environment for customers to visit for everyday goods and services. In line with government guidelines for stopping the spread of infectious diseases, we ask all customers to observe good hygiene practices at all times. Wash your hands with soap regularly, avoid personal contact with other non-family members, avoid touching your face and utilise hand sanitisation products where available.
We are constantly monitoring Government advice and will provide updates to the Tweed Mall community as soon as new information comes to hand. Customers should continue to check this page for updates.
Update 19th March 2020
The Centre will remain open upon advice from the relevant health authorities to ensure our customers have access to essential products and services.
The health and wellbeing of our shoppers, retailers, team members and community remain our top priority. At present, the recent ban on public gatherings excludes shopping centres as they are considered essential to the community, providing vital services to the local community such as food and groceries, pharmacies, medical centres and many other goods and services.
The Centre has implemented precautionary measures to ensure we are doing all we can to stop the spread. These come in addition to our standard operating procedures and include, but are not limited to:
- Increased routine cleaning of frequently touched hard surfaces
- Closing play areas
- If an in-centre team member of one of our retailers is confirmed as having the virus we require them to contact Centre Management immediately
To help Stop the Spread you should:
- Stay home if you are sick or at higher risk
- Thoroughly wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. Use an alcohol-based sanitiser if you can’t wash your hands
- Cover your cough and sneeze with your arm or a tissue. Then dispose of used tissues and use alcohol-based hand sanitise
- Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth
- Avoid contact with others (stay at least 1.5 metres from other people)
Should any member of Tweed Mall staff, a retailer, contractor or shopper who has recently been in the centre contract the virus, we will seek and follow the advice of the relevant health authorities
We will continue to monitor this issue and if there is any change in advice, we will notify our valued customers. If you require further information you can contact the National COVID-19 Health Information line on 1800 020 080 or visit https://www.health.gov.au/
