Araneta City, Quezon City's ultimate entertainment hub, resumes the operations in its mall foodcourts starting Monday, June 22, 2020.
The reopening comes three weeks after Gateway Mall, Ali Mall, and Farmers Market were reopened to the public with the implementation of the general community quarantine (GCQ) in Metro Manila.
Araneta City has placed measures to ensure proper physical distancing at the Food Express (Gateway Mall), Food Gallery (Ali Mall), and Food Plaza (Farmers Plaza). Markings are placed on tables to ensure limited seating capacity. Tables are arranged to ensure distance from each other.
Floor markings are provided to guide customers in queues, and safety reminders are installed in key areas of the foodcourts. Each stall also has alcohol dispensers ready for the customers.
Araneta City mall foodcourts open a week after the government started allowing limited dine-in operations in restaurants and fast food outlets.
"As we welcome back the public for their various daily activities, we are making sure that we put safety first here in the City of Firsts. We continue to implement precautionary measures that comply with the directives of health experts and the government," according to Mr. Antonio T. Mardo, Senior Vice President for Operations of Araneta City.
