WHY:                    The health and well-being of our customers, employees, retail partners, and the communities we serve are always our top priority. Over the past several months, The Outlet Collection at the Riverwalk® has worked with merchants, custodians, and security personnel to implement new safety protocols to help protect our customers. To ensure a safer experience for everyone, we’ll be implementing the following measures for the foreseeable future:

 

§  The mall will continue to regularly sanitize high-touch surfaces throughout the mall and will continue to do so in coming phases.

§  An entrance tracker will monitor occupant capacity to prevent potential crowding. Security team members will oversee crowd management and enforce social distancing rules.

§  Common areas like the children’s play area and the mall management office will remain closed to the public. The food court dining area will offer limited seating.

§  Guests entering the facility will be required to wear a proper face covering while in the building. Face masks will be available for any customer who does not have one.

§  Hand sanitizer dispensers, hands-free whenever possible, will be placed at key guest entrances and high contact areas such as elevator and escalator landings and stairway landings.

§  There will be health and safety signage throughout the property including social distancing reminders, proper face covering requirements, hand washing procedures and more.

·         Elevator maximum capacity signage will be placed on all passenger and freight elevators.

·         “One way” floor markers will be placed throughout the facility for guests to follow a flow of traffic.

·         Distance markers will designate spacing zones six feet apart at food court storefronts.

§  Security team members will oversee crowd management and enforce social distancing rules.

§  Mall employees, vendors and staff will be required to maintain six feet distance from other employees, vendors, staff and customers at all times.

§  Store managers will be asked to evaluate their employees for symptoms related to COVID-19 and their employees will be required to wear a proper face covering while in the building.
