Changes to Bathurst City Centre in accordance with New South Wales Government mandates – 26 June 2021
The New South Wales Government has announced that from 6:00pm today, Saturday 26 June, some restrictions will be introduced for regional New South Wales.
This means that the following must be adhered to when visiting Bathurst City Centre:
- Masks will be compulsory in all indoor non-residential settings, including shopping centres and retail spaces
- Drinking while standing at indoor venues will not be allowed
- Gym classes limited to 20 people per class (masks must be worn)
- The one person per four square metre rule will be reintroduced for all indoor and outdoor settings
To help keep our community safe, please be sure to bring an appropriate face mask with you the next time you visit Bathurst City Centre, unless one of the following exemptions applies:
- Medical reasons
- Under the age of 12 (although exempt, children under the age of 12 are encouraged to wear masks where practicable)
- Practical reasons e.g. eating and drinking
- Any other circumstance where it’s not safe to wear a mask.
We have implemented a number of measures to assist us and our community in adhering to this directive, including:
- All Centre staff and contractors will be required to wear masks while at work, unless they have a valid reason not to.
- We have installed signage to remind our community that they must adhere to this mandate and not enter the Centre without a face mask unless they have a valid reason not to.
- Close work with our security team and local Police to assist in monitoring our community’s adherence to this directive.
Please make sure to use the QR codes available throughout the Centre to check-in the next time you visit us at Bathurst City Centre.
We ask that our community remains respectful to others, as reasons for not wearing a mask are not always obvious.
We also ask for your continued support in making sure Bathurst City Centre continues to be a place of kindness and compassion for all our customers and staff throughout this time.
