Retail and shopping malls

Retail environments such as shopping malls have some unique challenges when it comes to preventing the spread of infectious diseases and maintaining safe and healthy environments for employees and shoppers.

Visitor numbers can be unpredictable and vary greatly. Germs can be spread easily through airborne means, direct contact (hands) and contaminated surfaces in food courts, rest rooms, info counters and other high-traffic public spaces.

Surfaces that can become easily contaminated include chairs and benches, elevator buttons, escalator rails, changing rooms, debit machines, counters, vending machines, shopping cart handles, etc.
