Bridges Shopping Centre Response to Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19)

Dear Valued Customers,

At the moment it is business as usual at the Bridges for customers who need to buy essential items. We ask that anyone who does decide to visit us should ensure they are following the Government guidelines in terms of social interaction, particularly if they fall into one of the at risk, vulnerable categories.

The health, wellbeing and safety of our customers is priority. While we’re very much aware and understand our customers being concerned about Covid-19, we want to reassure you that we’re monitoring the developing situation extremely closely and we’re following all advice issued by the Chief Medical Officer, Public Health England.

There have been no actual or suspected cases of the coronavirus (Covid-19) at the Bridges. If this situation changes, we’ll act quickly to protect our retailers, shoppers and employees.

As a team, we are following Public Health England guidelines to ensure that the best cleaning practices are always delivered.

  • We are having daily briefings and enhanced operating protocols.
  • We have increased the frequency of cleaning our public areas and have continued the use of sanitising disinfectant.
  • We have also taken the decision to close our public toilets to help manage the spread of Coronavirus. Sorry for any inconvenience caused.
  • Multi-storey car park is temporarily closed from 7,30pm on Friday 27th March, but our rooftop car park will still remain open and fully operational where we have lots of spaces for anyone that needs to visit for essential items.

We ask that you take these steps, which are consistent with government advice:

  • Please do not come to the Bridges if you have had a precipitant, new cough or a fever (Temperature above 37.8C). Follow government advice and self-isolate for 14 days.
  •  Keep your hands clean, wash regularly and thoroughly, for at least 20 seconds with soap and water.
  • Always carry tissues with you and use them to catch all coughs and sneezes and then bin the tissue – then wash your hands with soap and water.
  • Follow the Government guidelines in terms of social interaction, particularly if they fall into one of the at risk, vulnerable categories.
  • If you think you may have encountered the virus, please follow the government advice and self-isolate in the first instance.

We will keep you updated on our policies in due course.

Update: The centre is currently trading at its regular opening hours, which can be found here. Please ensure you follow government guidelines which can be found here.

Thank you for your cooperation.
