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.
Update: 10 January 2021
The South Australian government has announced a change to some restrictions as COVID-19 infections rise in South Australia. Under the new guidelines, the following restrictions will come into effect:
- Density for stores and services with standing activities, such as retail stores, remains at 1 per 2sqm (50% capacity).
- Density for venues with indoor seated activities, such as restaurants and cinemas, will decrease to 1 per 2sqm (50% capacity), with consumption to be while seated only.
- Density for outdoor seated activities, such as outdoor dining, will be 1 per 2sqm (50% capacity).
- Masks must be worn in public whenever practicable to do so, including on public transport, in personal care and healthcare settings, and inside stores.
- Hairdressers and beauty service practitioners must wear a mask while interacting with customers or administering any services. Clients are not required to wear a mask if necessary for the provision of the service (for example, receiving a facial).
- As of Friday 28 January, QR code check-in is no longer required for retail businesses, but remains for all other settings.
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.
