Bunnings and other retailers may have prevented them from becoming coronavirus hotspots because they followed strict social distance and hygiene measures.
In addition to enforcing these measures, Bunnings’ layout provides significant space between customers, limiting close interactions.
Bunnings said they have taken a “common sense” approach to finding ways to adapt during the changing environment due to the coronavirus pandemic.

“We also encouraged customers to plan their visit ahead and shop alone where possible.”
Bunning said they know sausage sizzles are ‘integral’ to the community, but the hardware giant said they will remain suspended for the time being
