Firstly, we hope that you are all taking care of yourselves and each other during this health emergency. As you’ve likely heard by now, all unnecessary places of gathering are now closed due to the COVID emergency. This means that all restaurants and cafes will be operating only in a take away and delivery capacity. We are expecting these measures to be in place for several months, and know they will be reviewed monthly. If the situation continues to worsen, we expect that stricter measures will be introduced when this measure is reviewed after a month, if not sooner.
This is a tough time for so many people, in so many different ways. Our heart goes out to our friends in hospitality that in a matter of a week have lost everything, and especially to those who have children to support and reassure during this period. I’m sure many of you are still processing what is happening.
Throughout the last two weeks we’ve been receiving an enormous outpouring of love and support from our community who have all come down to let us know that we’re not alone and night after night making it feel like business as usual. Unfortunately for our society, it has not been business as usual, and it is now absolutely essential that we all practice social distancing to as great an extent as possible. We support these new measures 100%, and while they will no doubt have a massive financial impact on us and on the thousands of people that depend on the hospitality industry for their livelihoods, it’s the right thing to do. But with that in mind I implore you all to take this social distancing seriously – stay home.
We will be doing our best to encourage people to stay indoors by doing what we in the hospitality industry do best – making it joyful. Throughout the next week, as time permits, we will be rolling out a series of new offers, specials, and programs. While the lid is still on for now, watch this space.
In addition, we will be launching our full online store this week where you will be able to buy gift cards, bulk pasta orders, and Social Distancing Pasta Party packs. We will be offering delivery, but please bear with us as we arrange the logistics of this. If you know you intend to order delivery online, hit us up with a message now letting us know your suburb, as this will help in the plan.
From the Campagnaris,
Stay safe, stay kind, stay inside <3
