San Juan Mayor Francis Zamora conducted an on-site inspection of Greenhills Mall and the recently reopened tiangge on June 4, 2020. The mayor wanted to make sure that the mall management and the tenants as well as the visitors abide by the IATF guidelines and his Executive Order on the shift from the Modified Enhanced Community Quarantine (MECQ) to General Community Quarantine (GCQ).

“As we kickstart our economic activities under the GCQ, we would like to make sure that people and companies remain vigilant against the dangers of COVID-19. We want to make sure that people who work and visit San Juan are safe,” Mayor Zamora explained as he inspected the mall.

A “no facemask, no entry” is strictly implemented to avoid the spread of the virus. Upon entry at the mall, people are asked to observe physical distancing as they go through the security and temperature check. Footbaths have been placed at the entrances of the mall. A brand-new metal detector with a built in thermal scanner has been installed. Visitors are also expected to sanitize their hands upon entry with alcohol dispensers at all entrances.

Floor markings have been placed to guide people with the proper physical distancing and to remind them to always observe health protocols. Stalls, shops and offices within the mall have also been required to post the maximum number of people allowed inside. Roving Health and Safety Protocol Officers have also been employed to remind and implement physical distancing and other protocols.

Major changes in the tiangge layout were also implemented. Stalls were divided into clusters of four. Each stall had plastic coverings between them and on the entrance. Only one sales person and one customer is allowed. Sales persons and mall staff are required to wear a mask and a face shield. They must also wear their Health Clearance and Travel Pass at all times.

“Before they are allowed to report back to work, employees working in San Juan are required to secure a Health Clearance from our City Health Office. We want to make sure that the employees, especially those in the frontlines like the sales personnel, are not infected with COVID-19 and will not be spreading the virus to other workers and shoppers.,” Mayor Zamora said as he showed the safety measures adapted by the mall and the tenants.

Reminders to observe physical distancing are posted on each stall with alcohol dispensers also required per stall. A 2 meter gap was placed between stalls and 2.6 meters was allotted for the hallways which will only allow one way foot traffic with additional floor markings and directional signs to guide the visitors of the mall. Sanitation stations were strategically installed with alcohol dispensers a few meters apart.

“We want to tell the people that although we are already on GCQ, we are still under Community Quarantine and that means health and safety of our people is our utmost priority. I would like to thank the management of Greenhills Mall for taking extra measures beyond what is required of them by the law and by our guidelines,” the mayor stated and added, “The measures they have implemented are very impressive and shows their commitment to prioritize health over profits.”

Mayor Zamora hopes that these health and safety protocols will prevent the spread of the virus and spur economic activity in the city.
