This Saturday, May 2, ten malls in Indiana will open their doors, one day after the ‘stay at home order‘, according to a new report.
This is part of the corporation’s 49 mall plan Simon Property Group, based in Indianapolis, which plan to reopen on May 4 nationwide, according to a statement obtained by CNBC. Malls have been closed since March 18.
Hours will be adjusted from 11 am to 7 pm Monday through Saturday; and from noon to 6 pm on Sunday, because they plan to do the cleanup on Sunday night, the release explains.
List of Shopping Centers that will reopen in Indiana:
- Castleton Square, Indianapolis

To prevent the spread of the virus, the company explained in the statement that it will regularly disinfect high-traffic areas and will be encouraging stores to do the same as well.
The free sanitary mask distribution program for all Japanese households has been complicated for the Government of Japan, which has been forced to paralyze an initiative received by citizens with a barrage of ridicule and criticism.
Although not required, the company said it will encourage shoppers to take their temperatures before entering the mall and will make temperature screenings free for customers.
The mall group will also encourage wearing some form of face covering while shopping. CDC-approved masks and sanitizing kits will also be available to shoppers, but it will be on demand.
To practice ‘healthy distancing,’ they will take several steps: taping bathroom sinks and urinals, placing floor decals to direct traffic flow, limiting food court seating, and closing off playgrounds and drinking fountains.
