SAFEGUARDING YOUR SHOPPING EXPERIENCE

The safety and health of our employees, shoppers and community is the top priority of The Shops at South Town.

The center has been following the current situation in our community and is taking all necessary precautions to remain open at this time. Our reduced hours are Mon-Sat 11am-7pm and Sundays 12-6pm. Out of an abundance of caution, all events and programming in common areas are cancelled through May 15.

We are following guidelines and actions offered by the International Council of Shopping Centers, which continually monitors and updates information released by the CDC (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention).

PREVENTATIVE MEASURES INCLUDE:

  • Increase in frequency of sterilization procedures using CDC-recommended products, with an amplified focus on all high-volume touch points such as restrooms, The Eatery, the children’s play area, escalators, elevators, entrance doors, handrails, etc.

  • Ongoing maintenance of existing alcohol-based hand sanitizer dispensers and disinfectant wipes in highly-trafficked areas and walkways for public use. Installation of additional units when possible.

  • Working in tandem with the City of Sandy and local health municipalities to monitor the evolving situation and further respond as-needed.

CDC RECOMMENDATIONS:

Amid the global spread of the communicable virus, public health officials from the CDC urges everyone to practice healthy habits including:

  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth.

  • Cover your cough or sneeze with a tissue, then throw the tissue in the trash.

  • Clean and disinfect frequently touched objects and surfaces using a regular household cleaning spray or wipe.

  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after going to the bathroom; before eating; and after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing.

  • If soap and water are not readily available, use a hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol. Always wash hands with soap and water if hands are visibly dirty.

  • The CDC does not recommend that people who are well wear a face mask.

  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.

  • Stay home from work if you are feeling sick.

  • Make accommodations for your employees to stay/work from home if they or their children are affected.

We will continue to monitor the data and recommendations from CDC, WHO (World Health Organization) and ICSC, and update our practices as needed.

Individual store, restaurant, and fitness studio hours may vary. Contact the store for details before your visit.

By following the above protocols, we can all take an active role in helping to contain the spread of COVID-19 and work together to maintain a healthy environment for our community.
