How Adelaide Central Plaza is Responding to the COVID-19 Retail Revolution

COVID-19 is affecting the lives of everyone right now. While individuals must do their best to social distance, it is also up to businesses to protect their staff and customers as much as possible.  Adelaide Central Plaza has risen to this occasion, and they are working to keep everyone safe.

Adelaide Central Plaza is located at the center of Rundle Mall, Adelaide, the capital city of South Australia. The centre has a food court and houses about 45 retail outlets, including Tiffany & Co, David Jones, Pandora, lululemon, Cue, Veronika Maine, and The Body Shop. The building has five levels and occupies 27,784 square meters (299,060 square feet).

Since this centre houses several retail outlets and is such an essential part of the economy in Adelaide, it was important for Adelaide Central Plaza to adopt best practice COVID-19 precautions.

“The safety and well-being of our staff, customers and the general public is, of course, our number one priority,” said Mr. Shaun Bonett, the CEO and Managing Director of Precision Group, the company who owns Adelaide Central Plaza.

The staff at the centre are strictly keeping up with guidelines and advice given by the Australian health authorities. This ensures they keep Adelaide Central Plaza to the highest standards of cleanliness and sanitization.

Social distancing is mandatory within the mall. All customers should be at least 5 feet apart. This practice is one of the best ways to prevent the virus from spreading while people are out in public.

Also, the administration in charge of Adelaide Central Plaza encourages people with any symptoms to seek medical help and stay home until they learn more or can be tested. The most common symptoms of COVID-19 are cough and shortness of breath. Other symptoms often include fever, chills, muscle pain, headache, sore throat, loss of taste or smell, or the chills.

If you have any of these symptoms, it is important to call a doctor right away. Call the National Coronavirus Health information line (1800 020 080 in Australia) or the Ministry of Health Healthline’s dedicated COVID-19 number (0800 358 5453 in New Zealand.
