There's been much talk of the enormous impact the pandemic has had on retail stores. Now some malls are starting to reopen, but things will be a lot different for both shoppers and staff.
"We are going to be wearing masks and gloves at all times," said Kevin Hipes, a manager at Oviedo Mall outside Orlando.
"We're going to follow all CDC guidelines," Hipes said.
When asked if he felt people are ready to come back to shop, Hipes said, "I think they are ready to come back. I can speak for my household — We're dying to get out of there. We want to remain safe and we want to be careful, but many people want to come back, especially to the restaurants."
The food court will have 75% less seating to encourage social distancing. The play area is closed and people will stand six feet apart as they wait in line for food. Social distancing will be enforced in the bathrooms, too.
