COVID-19 Important Update

Important Centre Update

This morning the NSW Premier announced an extension of ‘stay at home’ orders to now include both the Hunter and Upper Hunter regions. These restrictions will come into effect at 5pm this afternoon and stay in place until midnight Thursday 12th August 2021. 

In line with these new government restrictions, we are required to make the following operational adjustments for our Centre:

The following stores that provide essential goods and services will remain open and service our community:

  • Supermarkets, grocery stores, bakery, butcher, fruit and veg, fishmonger; and indoor or outdoor markets but only for groceries or fresh food
  • Bottle shops
  • financial institutions
  • post offices
  • newsagencies
  • pharmacies
  • petrol stations (including one that sells groceries)
  • ·vehicle and mechanical repair service centres
  • pet store or vet clinics
  • urgent services for the health and safety of a person, animal or premises
  • childcare facilities

The following stores will provide takeaway / grab and go only:

  • cafes and restaurants
  • food court eateries

All other stores have been classified as providing non-essential goods and services and must close. However, they can provide contactless click and collect if they choose to do so. Please call individual stores directly and they will advise if they are offering this service during lockdown.

Please also remember that mask wearing in Centre at all times is in place.

We understand that today’s announcement is difficult for our community and we are here to support you.

Staying safe is a community effort and we thank you for your ongoing understanding.
