With the global and national focus on coronavirus/COVID-19, the health and wellness of our employees, customers and communities are, as always, our top priority. We are carefully monitoring developments and adhering to recommendations from the World Health Organization (WHO), the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), and our local health authorities.
We want to keep you updated on the procedures we have in place here. We’ll be updating this page as needed.
While the Shopping Center ownership and management are taking reasonable precautions in accordance with CDC guidelines, but do not have control over our customers or patrons, vendors or tenants, and while we have alerted them to these guidelines, as all are aware, there are only limited tests available to test for COVID-19, and many people who are positive do not show any symptoms or show only mild symptoms. Therefore, notwithstanding our preventative actions, there is a risk of exposure. THEREFORE, ANYONE WHO ENTERS THE SHOPPING CENTER IS ADVISED TO TAKE EXTRA PRECAUTIONS, INCLUDING WEARING PROTECTIVE GEAR, SUCH AS A FACE MASK, PRACTICING SOCIAL DISTANCING, KEEPING AT LEAST 6 FEET FROM OTHER PEOPLE WHILE IN THE CENTER, AND WASHING THEIR HANDS OFTEN AND NOT TOUCHING THEIR FACES. THAT SAID, WHILE WE WELCOME YOU BACK INTO THE CENTER IN ACCORDANCE WITH THESE SAFE PRACTICES, YOU ENTER THE SHOPPING CENTER AT YOUR SOLE RISK; THE SHOPPING CENTER OWNERS AND MANAGEMENT DISCLAIM ANY LIABILITY FOR THE RISK OF YOUR EXPOSURE TO COVID-19 WHILE IN THE CENTER. DUE TO THE NATURE OF THE CRISIS, AND THE CONTINUAL DEVELOPMENT OF DATA AND EVENTS, POLICIES ARE SUBJECT TO CHANGE AT THE DISCRETION OF THE LANDLORD.

Additionally, we’ve advised our retailers to follow these guidelines in their stores. We need, and request, your cooperation in following these guidelines. These remain guidelines, and due to the nature of the crisis, are under continual development and may be subject to change.
Further, due to the fact that some COVID-19 positive cases do not exhibit symptoms, and the fact that adherence to these guidelines are not totally within our control, customers to the Mall are welcome to shop, but do so at your sole risk.
