When you’re in the Centre, here’s some guidelines to keep in mind:

 

Social distancing requirements are still in place

 
  • Please keep 1.5m metres away from others
  • There are lots of signs around the Centre to remind you, including at all entrances and on information directories. Plus you’ll hear reminders every hour through the PA system.
 

Each store has a limit as to how many people can be inside at one time. 

 
  • All stores will display their maximum number of customers
  • Please follow the direction of the staff if the store is full, and pop back later
  • If you find yourself in a queue, please ensure you follow social distancing guidelines while queuing
 

It's important for us all to practice good hygiene.

 
  • Keep your hands clean and use the hand sanitiser located around the centre
  • Avoid physical greetings such as handshaking, hugs and kisses
  • Use tap-and-go instead of cash
