2. What measures is West Edmonton Mall/Fantasyland Hotel doing to ensure the safety of guests and staff/employees?
The public safety and health of our guests is a top priority at West Edmonton Mall and Fantasyland Hotel. Our safety philosophy focuses first on prevention, and that guides our existing protocols for cleaning and sanitizing public areas, as well as educating our team members, tenants and guests on safe, sanitary practices. In addition to the rigorous cleaning protocol we already follow, that means reminding our team members about the importance of personal care, including proper hand washing; staying home if they are ill; covering their nose and mouth if they are coughing or sneezing; and, frequently wiping down work surfaces. It also means increased efforts with our guests, including adding more hand-sanitizing stations throughout the property and providing visible educational messages about preventative actions.
