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.
