We have been notified that a customer who visited Gladstone Shopping Centre on Friday 26th March between 4:45pm and 5pm has tested positive for the Coronavirus (COVID-19).
Anyone who was in the centre at either of these times is required to get tested and isolate until they return a negative test result.
We’re notifying customers and contacting our team members. We will continue to act in line with advice from the health authorities.
As a retailer, we already have very high standards of cleaning and hygiene in place. As an extra precautionary measure, the store had an additional deep clean after hours.
Customers and team members should be assured they can continue to safely shop and work at our Gladstone store.
Anyone who visited Gladstone Shopping Centre on Friday 26th March after 4:45pmm and becomes unwell in the next two weeks should make contact with Queensland Health for advice.
BIG W became aware of the case on Monday 29th March 2021 and has placed customer notifications in the store.
BIG W has special COVID-19 leave top-up provisions in place. This means our team members will not be financially disadvantaged based on their employment status or availability of personal leave if they contract COVID-19 or are required to self-isolate.
