There is nothing more important than maintaining a safe environment and we will be taking all necessary precautions including closing our free play area and removing our favourite Dragon by Mugg & Bean. We have increased our cleaning staff compliment, these additional staff members will be dedicated to sanitising all surfaces i.e. high-traffic and sign-touch locations throughout the mall. Examples of these include rest rooms, doors, railings and furnishings.
Over and above these added safety measures, we urge shoppers to follow the prescribed hygiene guidelines as washing your hands thoroughly and regularly, avoiding physical contact such as shaking hands, refraining from touching your face and covering their sneezes and coughs with the inside of the flexed elbow to name but a few. Posted notices can also be found in all our ablution facilities in the mall and on our social media platforms.
