Fostering a sense of community amid a public health crisis, Shangri-La Plaza mall enlisted the help of shoppers in designing safety distancing markers as part of the measures required in the operations of public establishments.
The initiative, dubbed Art Step in the Right Direction, invited mall guests to come up with their own designs for social distancing stickers, which would be applied to floors and elevators.
Since the announcement of the program in its social media pages, Shangri-La Plaza has collected several hand-drawn and digitally made designs from Shang Community members of different ages. Six of these creations—designed by Haylin, Juan Paolo Nacar, Karen Gomez, Wyna Dizon, Patrick Tiongson, and Karla Mae Muega—have been put in the mall.
Aside from social distancing markers, Shangri-La Plaza pioneered putting together an experienced and first aid-trained Emergency Response Group as part of its safety protocols, making regular rounds in its premises.
The mall continuously conducts mandatory temperature checks at all entrances; has made automatic hand sanitizer dispensers available at the entrances, restrooms, and other key areas; and performs regular rigorous sanitation. All mall guests and employees are required to wear a face mask to enter and while in store premises.
Shangri-La Plaza is open daily from 11:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m.
