“Everybody has just been fantastic as far as social distancing, just being very respectful of each other, working with the stores, on the lines coming in and out of stores,” Deuber said.
The mall is operating on limited hours from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m., which allows for more time for cleaning in the building.
