Coronavirus Update
Changes to Watergardens in accordance with the Australian Government directive.
Published 15 March

As we continue to adapt to Covid-19 and our rapidly changing reality, we remain committed to keeping our community informed and continuing to provide a safe environment.

In accordance with the Australian Government directive issued on 24 March 2020, we have temporarily closed gyms, cinemas, entertainment venues, kids’ play areas and seating zones for our restaurants, cafes and food court at Watergardens. As at end of trade 25 March 2020, the following personal services will close; beauty therapy, tanning, waxing, massage, tattoo (physiotherapists excluded). Changes to hairdressers and barber stores include 30 minute maximum appointments and one person per 4 square metres in the premises.

The previous 30 minute patron restrictions for hairdressers and barbers has been lifted as at 26 March 2020. Hairdressers and barbers can now have standard appointments but the 4sqm rule per person must continue to be observed within the premises. Personal contact during appointments must also be minimised.

Our restaurants, cafes and food court remain open for takeaway, offering pick-up or home-delivery options. Further information on delivery and takeaway options is available here. Note, as per social distancing directives, we have temporarily closed our food court seating areas. 

 
Keeping you safe as we navigate coronavirus together.

At Watergardens, 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 positioned hand sanitation stations at key points throughout the centre, including entries, amenities corridors, our Customer Service Desk, Centre Management Office for our entire community to access. We have placed Australian Government-issued information posters in our bathrooms, 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.

To protect yourself and those around you, we ask every member of our community to adopt safe physical distancing measures while visiting the centre. This includes avoiding crowded areas and maintaining adequate space of at least two metres between yourself and others when queuing or moving through the centre.

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 closely monitoring public health updates and prepared to act quickly should advice change. It goes without saying that our community’s health and wellbeing comes first.

We ask for your support in making sure Watergardens continues to be a place of kindness and compassion for all our customers and staff throughout this unprecedented situation. We also encourage all customers commit to social distancing whilst visiting.

As an essential service provider, Watergardens remains otherwise open and trading, with significantly enhanced measures in place to stop the spread of the virus within our centre. We will continue to provide updates on store changes in real time. A full list of store updates is available below.
