Eager customers were seen queuing up outside the Senayan City Mall in Jakarta on Monday, as shopping centres in the city reopened following months of closure due to the coronavirus pandemic.
Shoppers can be seen having their temperatures checked and sanitising their hands outside before passing through a check point and entering the facility. Shoppers and employees alike can be seen wearing face masks and maintaining a safe distance from one another.
«I am happy after almost three months of closing, of not meeting with customers, now the mall is open again and I can have connections with customers. I am so happy with this,» said Dea, an employee of the mall.
Shopping centres and non-food markets have been permitted to reopen in Indonesia's capital city since closing in April, provided they implement and follow certain safety guidelines, such as limiting capacity to 50 per cent of their normal levels and perform temperature checks on those entering their stores.
