We kindly recommend you wear a mask while shopping with us.
As the COVID-19 pandemic continues and particularly as cases rise in Melbourne and to a lesser extent Sydney we think it is our obligation to recommend people wear masks when visiting Port Central especially when social distancing is not possible. It is not yet mandated, but has been recommended by the State Government and NSW health.
Wearing a mask is a simple, practical way to help stop the spread of the disease. The more people that wear masks the lower the chance of another outbreak in greater New South Wales, which would inevitably lead to another lockdown. A lockdown would be terrible for the economy particularly for small businesses such as cafes, restaurants, and public houses.
Use of masks will also help to protect the vulnerable in our community such as the elderly and those with compromised immune systems. So please consider wearing a mask so that we can get through this situation together.
