DFO South Wharf has been notified of a confirmed case of Coronavirus in an individual who last worked at UGG Australia on Tuesday 16th June.
UGG will remain closed and the team is undertaking a thorough sanitisation of the store, in line with Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) recommendations.
We have been advised the risk to anyone who was in the store at the time is very low, and UGG is assisting the DHHS to inform employees of the person’s recent visit and the DFO South Wharf team is making direct contact with all of our retailers as a precautionary measure.
We have also increased our cleaning roster since learning of the case, with additional focus on specific areas including hand-rails, vertical transport, toilets, door handles, sinks, change tables and parents’ rooms, as well as communal furniture throughout the centre. This will continue for the foreseeable future.
We want to assure you and your teams, the safety and wellbeing of our customers, retailers and the broader community is always our priority and we are continuing to monitor and act upon recommendations from our federal and state health departments.
The advice from authorities is for anyone showing signs of an infectious disease, including fever, sweats or chills to see a doctor immediately.
Precautionary measures include washing hands and covering your mouth and nose when coughing or sneezing.
