CHAPEL STREET PRECINCT LEADS THE WAY WITH NEW SOCIAL DISTANCING PROTOCOLS
Shop Safer in Outside Retail Precincts
We’re lucky restrictions are easing!! BUT, you still gotta keep an over-sized tutu (1.5 metre) level of distance from your fellow street homies.
Consider yourself an unsung hero, keeping our community safe. Your mum will be proud. There’s more than one way of making social distancing fun! Have a look how we’re doing it…
Australia’s largest retail, entertainment and dining precinct, Chapel Street Precinct, has just launched a playful campaign that aims to educate Melburnians about safe shopping and remind them of social distancing protocols.
The campaign from Chapel Street Precinct Association (CSPA), ‘Shopping, Social Distancing Style’ will
bolster consumer confidence in the retail experience via weekly uploaded videos, while a collaboration
between the association and Stonnington Council will see social distancing decals and reminders
plastered along the iconic 2.8 km strip.

“I’m perpetually impressed by the resilience and innovation our Chapel Street Precinct businesses have shown over the last few exceptionally difficult months. Although there is devastation, there are positive sentiments. I have had a front-row seat to the grace and camaraderie different traders have shown each other while some endure their worst financial period yet. Now we ask our community to do ‘their bit’ to help stop the spread and a second COVID-19 wave,” said Ms. Chrissie Maus (Chapel Street Precinct General Manager)
“Restrictions have eased but social distancing remains essential, help our businesses out by maintaining 1.5 metres between yourself and others when you are out and about. Our businesses are doing the right thing and we need to support them in every way we can.” Said Mayor, Cr Steve Stefanopoulos, from the City of Stonnington.
As we build a COVIDSafe Australia, everyone must continue to practise physical distancing and good hygiene, and stay at home if you are sick.
CSPA HAS OUTLINED THE STANDARDS SHOPPING-SOCIAL DISTANCING STYLE AS:
- keep 1.5 meters away from others wherever possible
- avoid physical greetings such as handshaking, hugs and kisses
- use tap and go instead of cash where possible
- travel at quiet times and avoid crowds
- if you see a crowded space do not enter
- avoid large public gatherings
- practise good hygiene
- stay at home if you have any cold or flu symptoms. Seek medical advice and get tested for COVID-19
KEEP YOUR DISTANCE
One way to slow the spread of viruses, such as coronavirus, is physical distancing. The more space between you and others, the harder it is for the virus to spread.
As states and territories ease restrictions, it is important everyone continues to practise physical distancing.
Say ‘hello’ to sanitiser stations and single-use menus. On June 1, we joined the rest of Australia by being able to eat & drink inside our famous restaurants, cafes & pubs again (hooray)! See if your local fave has reopened for in-house dining!
Chapel Street Precinct recently unveiled ‘Chapel Innovation’, a hub for opportunity and initiatives for business owners to take part in, plus expert tidbits. This initiative explores the future of Chapel and also highlights some who bravely pivoted over COVID. This campaign is coinciding with the easing of lockdown restrictions to arm businesses with inspo.
