COVID-19 Update | Essential Service Informaiton
Date : 23rd Mar, 2020
Pursehouse Rural will remain open. Given the recent changes in Government advice regarding the outbreak of COVID-19 in Australia, Pursehouse Rural is classified as an essential service for farm and agricultural distribution, meaning we will remain open until otherwise instructed.
All customers should be advised that we are taking the transmission of germs and infection very seriously and have increased cleaning and hygiene practices throughout all Pursehouse Rural Branches. We will be following all of the advice from the Government and Health Officials and be implementing social distancing rules across all Pursehouse Rural branches. We require all employees and customers to remain 2m apart.
We will also be asking all customers to consider cashless payments at any transaction within Pursehouse Rural branches. Cash can pass through many hands and therefore are a carrier of many germs. The limit the spread of germs in our branches we ask all customers to consider cashless payment options wherever possible.
Each Pursehouse Rural branch will make changes to their daily operations in order to limit person to person contact and hopefully stem the spread of germs and infection. However, our service commitment to our customer remains the same. We continue to put the health and wellbeing of all customers and employees at the forefront of our operations. For this reason, small changes will be brought into place.
We would like to advise all Pursehouse Rural customers to adhere strictly to the advice issued by the Government and Health Officials before attending any Pursehouse Rural branch.
This includes the following:
Wash your hands regularly for at least 30seconds
Cough into your elbow or tissue and wash your hand immediately
Adhere to social distancing guidelines and remain 2m apart at all times
If you show any signs of illness please self isolate and refrain from attending your local Pursehouse Rural branch. Should you require farm merchandise as a matter of urgency, please contact your local branch manager and advise them of your situation.
Please continue to monitor all Pursehouse Rural social media platforms and our website for up to date information regarding our operations.
Together we can minimise the spread of COVID-19 in our community. Pursehouse Rural will continue to take responsible actions to protect all employees and customers from the risk of COVID-19 infection. However, we require your assistance in making these practices as effective as possible. Please continue to play your part, adhere to the advice issued by the Government and Health Officials and stop the spread of COVID-19 in our community.
