Safe Mall-ing at SM City Baguio
Hello Baguio City friends! I just received a Press Release from SM City Baguio and I think it is also imperative to share with you! So, how does SM City Baguio keep up to “safe mall-ing”? Please keep reading to know more details!
SM City Baguio full operation on essential needs
SM City Baguio begins to fully operate with essential and non-leisure services after the enhanced community quarantine period due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The gradual re-opening follows the local government unit’s decision to observe adjusted mall hours from 10:00 AM to 6:00 PM until further notice.
SM City Baguio carries out strict safety & sanitation measures
As part of SM’s campaign to promote #SafeMallingAtSM, SM City Baguio will continue to carry out strict safety and sanitation measures to assure shoppers that SM malls are safe and clean, complying with safety and sanitation protocols over and above government regulations.
SM City Baguio is thoroughly being cleaned and disinfected prior to the opening and throughout mall hours, especially in areas with heavy customer contact. Entrances are equipped with temperature checks. Alcohol dispensers are provided at the mall entrance and restrooms. The restrooms are sanitized every 30 minutes.
ALL should wear face masks
Everyone will be required to wear face masks at all times. Not only the mall staff but the mall-goers as well. In observance of social distancing, SM lays emphasis on “safe distancing” as this promotes the importance of physical distance with social connectivity.
In line with the government’s rules that discourage loitering in the mall, free Wi-Fi access will be disabled and “leisure” establishments will remain closed. Shoppers are requested to limit malling activities to buying essentials only, such as food and medicine, and accessing non-leisure services.
SM runs antibody rapid testing for all its front-liners
Taking safety measures up a notch, SM will run COVID-19 antibody rapid testing for all its employees and agency front-liners, including janitors and security guards. SM tenant partners can avail of this test, at cost, for their respective staff. Protective equipment is also provided, including face masks and face shields. Agency personnel working in high customer contact areas are required to wear gloves. Mall employees undergo temperature checks at the start of shift and throughout the day.

”As the country heals and recovers from the crisis, SM, together with its employees and partners, will continue to serve and support communities as its malls make everyone’s safety a top priority.
