The Association of Puerto Rican Shopping Centers (ACCP by its Spanish acronym) announced that to comply with the most recent executive order to contain COVID-19 transmission, the malls’ food areas or food courts will reduce their capacity by 50 percent.
ACCP President Adolfo González said the measure would be the most viable option since the possibility of asking customers’ for their vaccination card or a digital ID, as the local government promoted through the new executive order, needs to be developed further.
Gov. Pedro Pierluisi’s latest executive order enacts mandatory vaccination for workers at restaurants, theaters, among other establishments where people could conglomerate. The government is asking establishments to ask for proof of vaccination or reduce their maximum capacity.
