COVID UPDATE - 27 July 2021

From 11:59pm 27 July 2021:

As we welcome customers back to MC, you will see additional safety and social distancing measures in place at our centre to make your next visit a safe one. The well-being and safety of our shoppers, retailers and staff remains our first priority.

Following advice from the Victorian Government and the Department of Health & Human Services retail stores, beauty services, dining and entertainment precincts are now open at Melbourne Central with capacity limits in place. Our food courts as well as indoor/outdoor dining at our cafes and restaurants have reopened with restricted seating capacity in line with social distancing guidelines.

When visiting Melbourne Central please ensure you check-in via QR codes located at main entrance points and wear a fitted mask for the duration of your visit. In the interest of health and safety for yourself and others, social distancing and store capacity limits should be adhered to when you are in shopping at Melbourne Central.

We’ve also taken some extra steps within our centre to ensure it is a safe place for you, including:

  • Additional cleaning in high traffic areas, bathrooms and frequently touched surfaces.
  • In-centre signage detailing conditions of entry, QR code check in, mandatory face mask protocol and social distancing measures.
  • Covid Marshalls to assist with QR code check-in in Shot Tower Square.
  • Hand sanitiser stations within areas such as entrances, food courts and bathrooms.
  • Store capacity and social distancing signage throughout the centre.
  • Communication of hygiene messages to shoppers.
  • Additional security for the safety of our customers and retailers
  • Asking customers and staff to refrain from visiting our centre if they are showing symptoms, awaiting Covid Test results, have been exposed to anyone with the virus or visited an exposure site.

We have also deferred events and activities that could attract large crowds or groups of people/shoppers.

We’ll continue to follow the advice from the Government and Department of Health & Human Services to ensure we’re doing our best by our community.
