15 July 2020

Dear valued customers,

In light of the recent spread of COVID-19 cases in Victoria and to ensure the most effective protection is in place for the safety of both our customers and team members, please see below update regarding masks:


As the Victorian Government’s advice on the use of masks is optional, it’s not compulsory to wear one in our stores.

If you are in any doubt, or would simply feel more comfortable, please do wear a mask when you come into the store. This is the same guidance we have given to our teams.

While we welcome you wearing a mask if you choose, please don’t be judgemental of others who choose not to, whether team members or other customers. It is an individual decision and we ask that you respect the choice of others.

The advice also remains that physical distancing and regular hand washing remain the best defence against COVID-19.

All other safety measures will remain in place throughout all Tasman Butchers stores.

Please don’t come into a store if you feel unwell, should be in mandatory isolation or have been in contact with a confirmed or suspected case of COVID-19.
 
We appreciate the continued respect and courtesy shown to our team members and thank you for your ongoing patience and support as together, we do all we can to keep our communities safe.
