As we navigate through this unprecedented time, our priority remains unchanged, which is to keep our staff, shoppers and visitors in Rundle Mall safe. The Rundle Mall team is currently taking advice from the relevant authorities, together with the City of Adelaide, and has already implemented additional health and safety measures in the Mall. We have increased resources dedicated to cleaning high use areas in the Mall and introduced measures to improve efficiency and frequency, ensuring the Mall is an even cleaner and safer environment for traders, shoppers and visitors.
We are constantly monitoring the situation and working closely with retailers, centres and arcades in Rundle Mall to ensure that additional health and safety measures are in place for individual businesses.
Stage 3 Restrictions
Effective from Monday 29 June, State Government has announced the further easing of restrictions moving the state into stage 3, resulting in additional businesses being opened and removing the limit on how many people can gather in a space, as long as they adhere to the new rule of 1 person per 2 square metres.
Businesses that were required to close as part of COVID-19 restrictions must create a COVID-Safe Plan before they can reopen. A COVID-Safe Plan is a list of measures designed to keep staff and patrons safe and minimise the risk of spreading COVID-19. The requirement for defined businesses to have a Plan comes into operation from 1 June 2020.
Vehicle Access Update
The Rundle Mall team is focused on providing a safe and functional space within Rundle Mall for both retailers and the general public. As a result of COVID-19, we have been collaborating with our retailers to facilitate long and short-term strategies for queuing and access on the Mall. This has resulted in a review of vehicle access onto Rundle Mall and the permitted access times.
Please see the updated vehicle access times effective from Monday 8 June 2020.
