Important Update

Circuit breaker lockdown update: 9 June 2021

The Victorian Government has announced easing of restrictions and the end of the circuit breaker lockdown in metropolitan Melbourne, with the lockdown ending at 11:59pm on Thursday, 10 June. 

We want your shopping experience at Craigieburn Central to be safe and enjoyable, so we’re asking you to wear your mask when inside the Centre and check-in by scanning the Victorian Government QR Code, before entering your favourite stores.  

Certain restrictions will remain in place, please see below an overview of the recent announcements.

 

General restrictions:

The existing 10km radius has been lifted to 25km. The five reasons to leave home have been removed; however, if you are travelling further than 25km, then the following four reasons apply:

  • To give care or seek medical services
  • For essential work
  • To access education
  • To receive a vaccination.

Retail operations:

All general retail will be allowed to re-open, following the one person per four square metre rule. Note that certain retail sectors have additional guidelines, which are as follows:

  • Hairdressing, beauty and personal care service providers can re-open; however, only services in which the client can maintain wearing a face mask may be conducted
  • Cafes and restaurants can re-open for seated service, with a maximum of 50 people seated indoors. Please note: the one person per four square metre rule still applies and takes precedence over the 50 patron cap. The number of seated guests will be based on your seating area space divided by four.
  • Further to current Government advice Anytime Fitness and Snap Fitness will remain closed.

Face masks:

Masks will continue to be mandatory indoors and only required outdoors if a safe 1.5m social distance cannot be achieved, unless you have a lawful exemption.

We have reopened: 3 June 2021

After following the advice of the Department of Health and Human Services, we’ve been given the all clear to reopen for essential shopping and services.

While the lockdown and restrictions remain in place, we’re continuing to support stores to trade flexibly so please check our website for stores’ opening hours.

Thank you for your support and understanding. It’s good to be reopening and continuing to support our local community.
