Fed Square Information Regarding Coronavirus

Date Posted

March 3rd, 2020

Fed Square remains open for business and continues to welcome visitors from Melbourne, interstate and overseas.

There are no current plans to cancel any events, activations or any other public gatherings at Fed Square or elsewhere in Victoria due to coronavirus. Businesses and tourism operators across the precinct also remain open and need the support of the community at this time more than ever.

The outbreak in mainland China and in other parts of the world is of concern, however, the situation in Australia is significantly different. Victoria has plans in place to manage and mitigate the risks of coronavirus.

The spread of coronavirus occurs through close contact with an infected person, mostly face-to-face or within a household. It can’t jump across a room or be carried for long distances in the air. If you are not in a group at risk group of contracting coronavirus, you should go about your daily life and travel, work or study as normal. This includes continuing to use public transport, cars, taxis, hire cars, ridesharing, cycling or walking in public places.

The easiest way to protect yourself and event attendees is to pay attention to good hand hygiene and good respiratory hygiene:

  • You should pay close attention to good hand hygiene. Wash your hands regularly with soap and water, especially before eating and after using the toilet.
  • Cover your mouth and nose when coughing and sneezing with a tissue – or cough into your elbow. Dispose of the tissue into a bin and then wash your hands afterwards.
  • Face masks are not recommended for use by members of the public in Victoria, although anyone who wants to be cautious can of course choose to wear one.
