Under the modified enhanced community quarantine, the government allowed some businesses—including malls in Manila—to resume. However there are changes to be observed to make sure that transmission of COVID-19 is avoided. Besides enforcement of strict safety measures, only non-leisure establishments are allowed to resume operations. And while all malls will remove Wi-Fi access and will set their air conditioning to 26°C, each company also has its own set of protocols for added safety. Read on to see the list of malls in Manila that will resume operations and the safety protocols for each.
