Health & Safety Protocols
The Market Place remains committed to the health and safety of ourmerchants, employees, vendors, and guests. Therefore, we have added important steps to ensure our guests’ safety.
- We continue to implement enhanced cleaning and sanitization of high-touch areas.
- Hand sanitizer stations are placed throughout our properties for guests to use.
- Common area furniture has either been removed or rearranged to allow for physical distancing.
- We expect our guests to be prudent and maintain physical distancing at all times. To practice physical distancing according to the CDC recommendations, stay at least 6 feet from other people and do not gather in groups. To help with physical distancing, you will notice signs throughout our shopping centers that indicate safe physical distances around our benches, walkways, elevators, restrooms, and seating areas.
- For individuals who read lips, we are providing staff with transparent masks. Please let us know if you need this accommodation.
In addition, the California Department of Public Health issued Guidance on the Use of Face Coverings (May 3, 2021), which broadly requires the use of face coverings in California when in public or common spaces. California will keep this existing mask guidance in place until June 15, 2021, when it aims to fully reopen the economy and align its mask guidance with the CDC’s recent guidance.
