Matthew Roberts, Managing Director of Intu, said: “Experts from across Intu have formed a specialized working group that has considered everything we need to run intu Watford and our other centres as safely as possible.
“This includes working with our brand customers and providing them with all the support they need to reopen safely.
“We know we can’t do it alone and everyone who visits our centres, whether it’s for work or shopping, will play their part in keeping them safe. Our teams have worked hard to keep our centres clean and safe during containment and we are extremely grateful.
This includes new measures of social distancing throughout the centre, including a marked route for customers to follow, similar to the number of supermarkets operated during the crisis.
There will also be additional signs and markings to ensure that customers stay within two metres of each other while they travel to the centre.
Queues at entrances
As well as how other stores have already operated, there will be a queue system outside the centre for regular attendance and to ensure that social distance can be tracked.
Controls will be in place at the entry and exit points to help intu Watford effectively manage the number of buyers in the centre. If it is busy, the queue system outside each centre will be implemented.
There has also been the introduction of hand-cleaning stands everywhere to ensure that people are able to wash their hands regularly – intu have also confirmed that the toilets will also be open.
Intu have also said that they will increase their attention on cleaning up contact points and surfaces around the center, including handrails, lifting buttons and toilets.
Cleaners will also have extra protection to wear while ensuring their safety.
