Physical Distancing Guidelines
Implement measures to physically separate people by at least six feet using
measures such as physical partitions or visual cues (e.g., floor markings, colored
tape, or signs to indicate to where workers should stand).
Minimize exposure between workers and customers. Where physical distancing
cannot be maintained, use barriers such as Plexiglas.
Consider reassignment of vulnerable workers who request modified duties to
reduce contact with others
Have on-property security staff remind customers of physical distancing.
Clearly mark curbside or outside pickup points that maintain physical distancing.
Coordinate with retail tenants to dedicate shopping hours for seniors and other
vulnerable populations.
Increase pickup and delivery service options such as online ordering for curbside
pickup.
Use controlled foot traffic and crowd management strategies, and provide
separate, designated entrances and exits.
Ensure kiosks do not impede physical distancing. Move or remove if necessary.
Prop doors open if they do not open and close automatically.
Limit the number of people to ensure physical distancing, in no case more than
50% maximum occupancy, for indoor shopping centers; evaluate maximum
occupancy rules for outdoor shopping centers to ensure physical distancing.
Rearrange chairs and benches, including ones in food courts, to enable physical
distancing requirements.
Close play areas and reconfigure benches for physical distancing.
Use store entry queueing systems that do not disrupt foot traffic while maintaining
physical distancing requirements.
Adjust staff meetings to ensure physical distancing or hold via phone or webinar.
Close breakrooms and use outdoor break areas with shade, or increase distance
between chairs to maintain physical distancing during breaks.
Stagger worker breaks, in compliance with wage and hour regulations, to
maintain physical distancing protocols.
Implement physical distancing at loading bays and use contactless signatures for
deliveries.
