The Central Geelong business community continues to be significantly impacted by the continuing developments in the COVID-19 (Coronavirus) pandemic and we remain focused on supporting Central Geelong’s business operators during these unprecedented times.

While some Central Geelong businesses have been able to keep on trading within social distancing requirements, some have had to temporarily close and many have found new and innovative ways to keep operating over recent weeks and months. Cafes and restaurants are offering new take-away or delivery options to eat or cook at home. Professional services are offering online consultations. Health and wellbeing businesses are livestreaming yoga or meditation sessions or providing products and tutorials for at-home classes or treatments.  And some of Central Geelong’s finest entertainment and cultural venues are offering amazing content for you to enjoy while you are safe at home.

On this website you'll find all Central Geelong businesses have a business profile. You can search a business you are looking for here.

Once you have opened their business profile you may notice a section of that profile with their current COVID-19 operating status. This section indicates with an icon how this business may be doing something different in light of current restrictions. 

These icons include and are represented by the following symbols: 

- Live Streaming/Virtual Experiences
- Online Services
- Online Shopping only
- Reduced Services/hours
- Temporarily Closed
- Take away only

As things are moving quickly right now we will keep updating the business profiles so keep checking back or you can drop us an email at centralgeelong@geelongcity.vic.gov.au to notify us of a business you know of that are doing something different. Be sure to check the social media accounts of your favourite businesses to keep up with what they're doing, you'll find the links to these on their profiles too.
