The Oaks Mall in Gainesville is now open with adjusted hours.
“The mall will be open from 11:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m. Monday-Saturday and from noon to 6:00 p.m. on Sunday,” according to the mall. “New measures have been implemented to help ensure the health and safety for all who enter the mall, including hand-sanitizing stations, touch-free interactions, frequent and intense cleanings and social distancing directions.”
The mall was able to reopen on May 8 in response to the Florida Governor’s Executive Order No. 20-112 and the Alachua County’s Order No. 2020-21 allowing retail stored to open at 25% capacity. The food court will also be open with adjusted seating to follow social distancing guidelines.
The mall’s valet services, play areas, stroller rentals and mall-operated carousels will not be operating for the time being, according to the Oaks Mall.
