Dapto Mall has remained open throughout this period to provide essential services to the community and the health and safety of everyone who visits the centre remains our priority.
Update Wednesday 27 January 2021
The NSW Government have announced that masks will be encouraged but no longer compulsory in retail venues as of Friday, 29 January 2021. Masks will remain compulsory for front-of-house hospitality staff, hairdressers and beauticians. Our cafes, restaurants and Food Court will still have limited capacity as the 1 person per 4sqm rule remains in place.
Despite the easing of restrictions, we continue to remain diligent in our cleaning processes with a focus on key areas such as hard surfaces and bathrooms. Hand sanitisers also remain in place at all entrances for customers and retailers to utilise.
We encourage our retailers and customers to monitor and follow NSW Government advice. To ensure you receive the latest information, alerts and answers to frequently asked questions please visit www.health.nsw.gov.au/

We are working hard to ensure a visit to Dapto Mall remains a safe and welcoming experience. We have remained diligent in our cleaning processes and through our service providers, we have placed additional focus on key areas such as hard surfaces, food courts and bathrooms and all AMP Capital managed assets have facilities in place to support our customers and tenants to practise good hygiene, such as hand sanitisers. We’ve also increased signage and security to ensure physical distancing and other government measures continue to be observed by everyone.
Our stores have signs at entry points to instruct customers not to enter if they are unwell or have COVID19 symptoms. Each business has the right to refuse service and must insist that anyone with these symptoms leaves the premises. Where practically possible, retailers have set up separate exit and entry points to minimise contact.
The NSW Government recently announced updates to managing contact tracing and have introduced mandatory digital check in requirements for some businesses from Monday 23rd November. The mandatory digital check in registrations will help keep NSW communities COVID Safe. For customers entering venues without a mobile phone, venues are asked to record their details and time of entry on another device. Venues must manually collect contact details in instances where electronic forms can not be accessed, including during internet outages. We appreciate your cooperation when visiting retailers who require you to check-in.
The food court is open, with tables 1.5 metres apart and physical distancing practises still apply.
We can all help slow the spread of COVID-19 in Australia. To protect others and when visiting the centre you must:
practise good hygiene
stay home if you are unwell
wash your hands frequently with soap and water, before and after eating, and after going to the toilet
cover your cough and sneeze, dispose of tissues, and use alcohol-based hand sanitiser
We will continue to monitor this issue and if there is any change in advice, we will notify our valued retailers and customers as appropriate.
Due to the recently announced “Road to Recovery” by the Australian Government, and the recommended staged approach, AMP Capital has developed a COVIDSafe Policy, in line with the Safework Australia guidelines. For more information on the policy visit this link.
We encourage our tenants and customers to monitor Public Health Department advice to ensure you receive the latest information, alerts and answers to frequently asked questions.
