Encourage safe and respectful shopping with the ARA’s new Covid-19 poster range

The Australian Retailers Association has developed a series of printable posters in response to the ongoing Covid-19 situation across the country, to promote a safe shopping environment for both customers and staff.

We encourage you to display them at the entrance of or within your stores.  

Please ensure you adhere to the COVID-19 requirements in your state or territory. The ARA’s COVID-19 Resource Hub has an up-to-date breakdown of these restrictions and requirements.
