Fox Valley Mall To Reopen

Fox Valley Mall will be reopening to shoppers on June 1, with some new guidelines in place. The mall will operate on a reduced schedule for the first 30 days to allow extra time for cleaning and disinfection, and will maintain a 50% occupancy. Each individual store or restaurant within the mall will determine its own re-opening schedule. Dividers at entries and exits will help direct traffic flow, and shoppers will be encouraged to wear masks, follow social distancing rules, and wash or disinfect their hands frequently. High contact amenities like drinking fountains will remain closed, with other high-touch surfaces being disinfected at regular intervals throughout the day. Food court tables will be removed, with food court restaurants packaging food in to-go containers. The mall has also announced the addition of Pandora, now open, and MISH MASH Adventures, coming in July. For complete details, go to the Fox Valley Mall website.
