SM Puerto Princesa City strengthened its health precautionary protocols amidst the newly-recorded person under investigation (PUI) case in the city.

Russell Fernandez, public relations officer of SM Puerto Princesa City, said Tuesday that they have prioritized the safety and well-being of their customers, tenants, partners and employees as the country increased its total confirmed coronavirus disease (COVID-19) cases to 24, prompting business establishments to step up their preemptive measures.

“Our sanitation team that continuously disinfects common areas with heavy customer contacts such as escalator handrails, elevator buttons, and comfort rooms, are sanitized every 30 minutes. Sanitary alcohol dispensers are installed at all entrances,” he said.

All SM Malls across the country were also provided with thermal scanners to check the temperature of the mall-goers and employees going inside the establishment.

Persons with a temperature above 37.6 degrees Celsius are not allowed entry and are being advised to visit the nearest medical facility.

Posters are also placed at the entrances containing the latest information bulletins vetted by the Department of Health (DOH) and the World Health Organization (WHO).

All security guards and mall personnel are required to wear face masks, which were all provided for by the management.

Frontliners are also instructed to advise mall-goers to use alcohol dispensers and promote personal hygiene among shoppers.
