Westfield shopping centers in San Diego, which include Westfield UTC, Mission Valley, North County and Plaza Bonita, will reopen for the community starting Friday, May 29.
New health and safety practices will be implemented, including increasing the frequency of cleaning following CDC and local health department guidelines; monitoring the number of guests entering the centers; and enforcing social distancing, face masks and other preventative measures. For example, some retailers will continue curbside pick-up for items purchased online or over the phone.
“As we begin our initial recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic, our centers will be equipped to provide a healthy, clean and safe environment for our customers, retailers and employees,” said Nino Rodriguez, vice president of shopping center management.
For now, the centers will open during limited hours although individual retailers’ hours may vary. Westfield’s hours will be 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. Monday through Saturday and 12 p.m. to 6 p.m. on Sunday.
