Mall of the North values the health and safety of our community. For as long as it is prudent and permissible, Mall of the North remains open and operational so that our retailers can serve the community during this unprecedented time. The Mall continues to support its shopping community by ensuring that critical products and services are available to those who need them.
The well-being of tenants, shoppers and employees are of paramount importance and to that effect, management is closely monitoring the development of the COVID-19 situation; and has taken the necessary precautionary measures in accordance with the World Health Organisation (WHO) and the relevant South African and local health authorities. Mall of the North will stay abreast of all new developments to keep our shopping community informed. We will always adhere to any new regulations prescribed by the National Government.
Providing a safe environment, as we remain open, is our first priority. We have taken heed of all recommended precautions and best practice. The mall’s common areas are cleaned more regularly and rigorously, using the prescribed alcohol-based disinfectants. Extra hand-sanitiser stations have been added throughout the mall.
Over and above these added safety measures, we urge shoppers to follow the prescribed hygiene guidelines such as washing your hands thoroughly and regularly, avoiding physical contact such as shaking hands, refraining from touching your face, coughing/sneezing into your elbow, to name but a few. Educational notices are posted in all our ablution facilities in the Mall.
