The safety and health of our employees, shoppers and community is the top priority of Great Northern Mall.
We are excited about the progress and retail outlook at Great Northern Mall. A safe shopping and dining environment continues to be of paramount importance. The State of Ohio terminated the Public Health Orders on Wednesday, June 2, 2021 as Ohio met all requirements to end COVID-19 directives. Additionally, the Center for Disease Control (CDC) provided guidance regarding face coverings on May 13, 2021 that is consistent with our state guidelines.
In light of Governor DeWine’s executive orders and recent CDC guidelines, face coverings are now optional at Great Northern Mall. Patrons are encouraged to practice safety precautions in public spaces.
Deep cleaning and sanitation of the common areas will continue. Stores and restaurants in the shopping center determine the safety procedures they choose to follow. Please be mindful of each policy.
In accordance with the state government and CDC, Great Northern Mall has implemented the following changes: Great Northern Mall will no longer require customers to wear a face covering or physically distance in the common area of the center. Face coverings in the common area are optional.
Individual stores, restaurants and entertainment venues will make their own determination as to whether or not to require face coverings in their space.
As outlined in the recent order, all businesses have the right to determine their own policies as it relates to the safety and policies for their customers and employees. Security and Janitorial personnel serving the common areas will continue to wear face coverings until further notice.
Common area seating, including Food Court seating, will be returned to normal pre-pandemic levels. Any restrictions that may have been in place limiting eating and drinking within Great Northern Mall have been removed.
Expanded cleaning policies that had been implemented to promote public health safety during the pandemic will continue.
This includes but is not limited to expanded cleaning in high touch areas such as restrooms, Food Court, and seating areas.
In addition to following all state government mandates, Great Northern mall continues to take additional steps to promote a safe environment. Guests will notice the installation of numerous hand sanitizer stations throughout the Center and increased cleaning procedures by our Housekeeping team. We will also offer complimentary disposable face-covering upon request to guests (if requested), and all Management, Public Safety, and Housekeeping staff will continue to wear a face covering.
We look forward to continuing to welcome back our community. As we do so, please know that a safe shopping and dining environment continue to be of paramount importance and our main priority.
