Consumers have found their malls completely processed on Monday. In this first opening day since the beginning of the pandemic COVID-19, they might have noticed that the health measures are ubiquitous.
Security officers are stationed at each entrance. They control the number of people in the shopping centre. From the first step inside, the disinfection of the hands is mandatory. The common areas have also been adapted to provide places that are safe. Signage and markings have been put in place on the ground to indicate the unique meaning of the passages.
Since the loitering and gatherings are strictly forbidden, the furniture and the chairs have been removed. All common surfaces are disinfected to hours. Each employee wears the mask or visor. Areas of restorations are open, but only for orders for take-out.
