Stage 4 restrictions – what they mean for Hoppers Crossing Shopping Centre

As announced by the Victorian Government, from Thursday 6 August there will be a number of significant changes at Hoppers Crossing Shopping Centre as Stage 4 restrictions are introduced across metropolitan Melbourne. These changes will be in place for at least six weeks.

The Victorian Government has stated that shopping centres can remain open during this time. As such, Hoppers Crossing Shopping Centre remains open, operating at significantly reduced levels to provide access to permitted retail for our community, should you choose to visit us.

The Stage 4 restrictions will see many of our retailers temporarily close for at least six weeks. The following essential goods and services are permitted to continue to trade during this time:

  • Supermarkets and grocery shops, including all food and liquor shops
  • Convenience stores and newsagents
  • Pharmacies
  • Medical centres for appointments that cannot be undertaken virtually
  • Restaurants and cafes for delivery and contactless takeaway only
  • Laundry and dry cleaners
  • Post offices
  • Fuel retailing
  • Security services
  • Building maintenance, cleaning

Although these retailers are permitted to trade, some may make the decision to temporarily close or otherwise reduce their hours. We encourage you to check store hours for the most recent information on individual retailers’ trading hours.

Please note that our café and restaurant retailers are permitted to remain open, offering takeaway and home delivery services only.

All other stores are considered non-essential under the Stage 4 restrictions and must close for trade from Thursday 6 August. For further detail on the business restrictions announced by the Victorian Government, we encourage you to visit https://www.vic.gov.au/coronavirus-covid-19-restrictions-victoria.

Mandatory Face Coverings

If you choose to visit us during this time, please remember that you must wear a face covering at all times when visiting our Centre, unless:

  • You are under 12
  • You have a medical condition that prohibits the wearing of a face covering
  • It’s not practical
  • For professional reasons.

To help keep our entire community safe, please be sure to bring an appropriate face covering with you when you next visit Hoppers Crossing Shopping Centre.

Thank you for your ongoing patience and understanding as we all adjust to these rigorous new measures and navigate the changes together with kindness and compassion.

Keeping our community safe

As has been the case throughout the entire COVID-19 crisis, the health and wellbeing of our customers, staff, retailers and contractors is our number one priority. This is more important now than ever before.

We continue to implement and maintain stringent precautionary measures to keep our entire community safe. These include:

  • A strengthened focus on disinfecting commonly touched areas, sanitising high-touch points with high-grade disinfectant throughout the Centre.
  • Placing Australian Government-issued information posters in our bathrooms, which outline crucial information on how you can help stop the spread of COVID-19.
  • Rolling out public hygiene advertisements across the Centre, reinforcing the preventative measures each of us should adopt.
  • Installing signage and floor decals across parts of the Centre, reminding our community to keep 1.5 metres between themselves and others at all times, including when queuing or moving through the Centre.
  • Adjusting air-conditioning systems to maximise the intake of fresh air, ensuring that quality air is circulated throughout the Centre.
  • Reminding our community to adhere to government mandates to wear a face covering while outside of the home, unless there’s a valid reason not to.
  • Working closely with our retail partners to help ensure that we are all playing our part to keep our shared environments safe.

While we are doing what we can to help protect the health of our community, we all have a part to play in keeping our community safe, and that means:

  • Practise social distancing while you’re at the Centre and always keep at least 1.5 metres between yourself and others.
  • Maintain a high level of personal hygiene. Wash your hands regularly  and safely cover your cough or sneeze.
  • Wear a face covering, unless you have a valid reason not to, and follow all government directives and advice.
  • Most importantly, stay at home if you are feeling unwell, are awaiting test results, or are experiencing any COVID-19 symptoms.

As always, we are closely monitoring public health updates and are prepared to act quickly should the advice change. Once again, the health and safety of our community is our overriding priority.
