Confirmed Coronavirus Update
Updated: Monday 27th July, 2020
Centre Management was advised Monday 27th July, that a cleaner has tested positive to COVID-19, and has been self-isolating since receiving their test. The cleaner’s usual shift is between 4am and 7am, focusing on the external component of the Shopping Centre only, primarily being the carpark. As the safety of our community is our main priority, any area that the individual may have been exposed to is undergoing a deep clean and is not accessible to the general public.
