No Bathroom Selfie or window Shopping is allowed for the next trip to malls in Mumbai. According to the healthcare experts whenever you go to Malls there is a question you should think hard about. Even is so much of rain. Mumbai unlocks 3 is on its way with malls reopening after being shut down for over months due to COVID19.
Dr. Parthiv Sanghvi, Former secretary of IMA Maharashtra who is currently an honorary surgeon at a BMC-run hospital in Jogeshwari East told News18, “The biggest problems with malls is that shops are too close to one another which doesn’t allow enough space for distancing, and it is basically a closed environment, which is always conducive for the spread of the virus. So, unless it is absolutely important, it is better to avoid malls for the time being.”
Of course, several precautions will be taken to ensure the safety of the public against coronavirus. That has affected 1,17,406 people in Mumbai. Big Malls like Pheonix Market City have made it mandatory to wear masks. Hence temperature checkup will be taken at the entrance. Their website stated that they are sanitizing mats for disinfecting people’s footwear. They will be requesting people to maintain a four-step distance and allowing only 3 people in the elevators. They are also doing safe air conditioning according to government rule.
However, doctors prefer to ensure personal safety by using high quality masks and people should refrain from touching too many things in the store specially the most common surfaces like doors.
“Trial rooms are also absolutely closed places in most stores, so the air circulation doesn’t happen properly in those particular pockets.” said the doctor. Even if malls are maintaining safe air as per government guidelines and their central air conditioning is being monitored, people have to be careful in these boxed spaces, and perhaps shouldn’t spend too much time in them. “There are many reports pouring in that Coronavirus can linger in the air for quite some time, so preferably avoid these closed spaces which are being used by multiple people within a short time.
In many malls and stand-alone stores new trial room practices are being enforced. The most common one is that trial clothes are being steamed after trials and being returned to the stands. In some cases, for instance, a news report claims Levis is quarantining trial clothes for 48 hours. Before bringing it back on the stand. Whatever the policy, people should make sure they know that the clothes are safe before putting them on, and make necessary inquiries about the sanitation process before trying out clothes.
