Staten Island Mall reopens Wednesday: What you need to know – SILive.com

STATEN ISLAND, N.Y. -- After nearly six months of being shuttered, the Staten Island Mall will reopen at 50% capacity on Wednesday, confirmed the New Springville malls management.

The governor made the announcement Thursday that New York City malls, which are the last shopping centers in the state allowed to open during the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, could reopen Sept. 9 at half capacity.

While this pandemic is far from over, our numbers have remained steadily low, so we know our phased, data-driven approach to reopening is the right one, Cuomo said. Thanks to the hard work of New Yorkers, we are at a point in our fight against this virus where we can safely reopen malls in New York City as long as they adhere to strict health and safety protocols. Masks, enhanced air ventilation systems, and social distancing will be mandatory. This is good news and the right step forward.

Senior Mall manager James Easley said the Mall will operate with reduced hours, and will be open from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m.
