Editorial Coronavirus Update

Posted on 18 March by Cairns Central

Let's work together to reduce the spread of COVID-19

To our valued Cairns Central customer,

The safety and wellbeing of our customers, centre staff and local community is our highest priority.

As countries around the world continue to respond to the unprecedented coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, we’re monitoring the situation very closelyand have already put in place a number of measures to ensure the health and safety of visitors to our centre.

What are we doing?

Our centre management team has been trained in preventative and reactive measures, in line with guidelines from health authorities. We have also increased the frequency of cleaning of common areas, bathrooms, parents rooms, play areas, elevators and escalators with hospital grade disinfectant. We have displayed public health signage throughout the centre and have provided additional hand sanitisers for customers and centre staff.

Cairns Central has made the proactive decision to postpone our upcoming events and activations. We hope to reschedule these events at a later date, and we’ll keep you updated via our website and social channels. We’re sorry for the inconvenience, but it’s important that we act responsibly.

Our centre remains fully open and trading so our retailers can continue to provide our community essential products and services. Please visit our website for any updates to trading hours for majors and specialty stores. Retailers are working hard to maintain stock levels as best as they can, and we thank you for your patience and support of them.

What can you do?

Please continue to support your local retailers and community.

We encourage everyone to be extra vigilant with personal hygiene during this time, including washing hands regularly and avoiding contact with others if unwell.

We will continue to monitor the evolving situation and advice of the Australian Government Department of Health, and will update our valued customers.

Thank you for your continued support during this time.
