To our valued customers,
A State of Emergency has been declared in Victoria due to the serious risk to public health posed by coronavirus (COVID-19). The health and safety of our Banyan community and staff is our absolute TOP PRIORITY, and we wanted to let you know that we are taking all the necessary measures to ensure our Camberwell Showroom is a safe environment.
We are undertaking stringent infection control strategies, as well as thorough and diligent cleaning procedures to both be in line with best healthcare practice and to support our community on the evolving Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak.
Our entire Banyan Team is fully briefed on how to monitor and maintain these measures, which include extra deep cleaning and placement of sanitising gel in our common areas. You will be offered hand sanitiser at the front door.
We strongly discourage clients from attending our showroom if you:
- Are feeling unwell or present flu-like symptoms such as fever, coughing, sore throat and fatigue and/or shortness of breath. In these circumstances, we urge you to seek medical attention, visit your local fever facility and self-isolate for 14 days.
- Think you may have been in close contact with a confirmed case of coronavirus, in which case you should also monitor your health and seek medical attention immediately.
- Have been travelling overseas, by plane or ship. If that is your case, it has become mandatory to self-isolate for 14 days, otherwise you may face heavy penalties.
- Fall in a high-risk group (e.g. people with underlying illness, immunocompromised conditions, aged care)
One of the best defences against this virus is to keep your immune system strong. Some of the best ways to do so is by prioritising rest, managing your stress levels and eating healthy.
Please know that we are monitoring the situation closely and doing everything to stay up to date. Here are some further resources to help you stay informed:
- Australian Department of Health
- World Health Organisation (WHO)
- Vic Health
As a small, family owned business, we can't thank you enough for your continued support. Your health and safety is our top priority and we will do everything we can to ensure you feel safe in our Showroom and to minimise infection risks where possible. For your peace of mind, please remember you can always shop online.
Thank you, from the bottom of our hearts, for shopping local and supporting small business.
The Banyan Team
