The Health of our customers and staff is our highest priority.



The team here at Meridian Shopping Centre are aware of the recent concerns surrounding COVID-19/Coronavirus, we would like to assure our customers that we are putting a number of precautions in place to keep the Centre as clean and hygienic as possible. We have the NHS hand wash posters in all common area toilets as well as antibacterial hand wash. We are also looking at increasing the frequency of deep cleans that take place within the Centre.

We will continue to follow the official guidance from Public Health England carefully and are monitoring the situation closely. As always the health and safety of our customers is among our highest priorities, therefore, we urge anyone who believes they may be showing any of the symptoms to use the NHS Online services, if you have mild symptoms, and to call NHS Direct on 111 and seek help if it gets worse, or the symptoms don’t go away over time.

We would like to remind customers that hand washing facilities can be located in our toilets in the Centre. Please wash your hands with soap and water often to help prevent the spread of germs.

We would like to remind all customers to be mindful of maintaining good personal hygiene whilst in the Centre today. Government advice recommends that we wash our hands for 20 seconds, catch coughs and sneezes in a tissue and dispose of it in a bin. Thank you for your understanding and cooperation.
