Phase one of Qatar's four-phase reopening strategy is now in place, and that mean's Doha's malls can welcome shoppers once more.
Only 30 percent of a mall's capacity is allowed to open at the moment, and at Mall of Qatar, that means more than 100 stores are in operation.
All safety measures are in place in accordance with the Health and Safety Laws and the relevant instructions from the government.
The mall's general manager Emile Sarkis says “We are pleased to resume operations and happy to welcome visitors again to our mall to offer them a safe and convenient shopping experience. Mall of Qatar is taking all the necessary precautions that guarantee the safety and health of our staff and shoppers alike.
"We have implemented measures, including sanitisation, and encouraging customers touchless smart payment, which will ensure the safest possible shopping and lifestyle experience to all. In collaboration with our tenants, we always endeavour to provide the best solutions that cater to our customers’ needs.
"Together with the tenants, we are keen to offer our customers a healthy and safe place to shop and have a peaceful journey while shopping”.
Mall of Qatar is conducting regular comprehensive deep cleaning and sanitising. Instructions for shoppers are installed at the entrances and throughout the mall to remind the public about the distances that must be observed and to sanitise their hands regularly.
All visitors need to show the green code on the Ehteraz app, wear masks and always maintain social distancing. Thermal cameras have been installed at the entrances and throughout the mall there are hand sanitisers. The re-opened stores can only reach 30 percent capacity.
