Keeping you updated and Keeping you safe
As we navigate Covid-19 together, here is our commitment to you.
- Working together to keep you safe as we navigate coronavirus
- We continue to work in close collaboration with our Retailers to ensure that we are all doing our part to keep our shared environments clean and safe, while keeping our team members up to date with new information and advice from the relevant authorities.
- We are pleased to advise that under the NSW Health and Safety, MarketPlace Raymond Terrace is listed as COVID Safe with a number of Covid plans in place.
- We closely monitor public health updates and are prepared to act quickly should advice change. It goes without saying that our community’s health and wellbeing comes first, and we have therefore implemented the below processes at MarketPlace Raymond Terrace.
We are committed to maintaining these measures as we enter into the next phase
- We have strengthened our already stringent cleaning processes by placing a heightened focus on sanitising high-touch points with high-grade disinfectant, as well as increasing the number of cleaning rotations each day.
- We have placed Hand Sanitiser stations at key points in our Centre.
- We have strategically spaced Australian Government-issued information posters in our amenities, which outline crucial information on how you can help stop the spread of COVID-19.
- We have also rolled out public hygiene advertisements across the Centre to reinforce preventative measures that each of us should adopt
- We have implemented PA announcements to remind our community to practise social distancing
- We have placed Social Distancing signs around the Centre
- We have provided each of our retail stores with signage to advise the number of people allowed in store for ease and safety of social distancing
While we understand that the re-introduction of in-Centre experiences that have been greatly missed by our community is something to be excited about, we ask you to continue to play your part to keeping our community safe.
- Covering your coughs and sneezes with your elbow or a tissue
