Intercity Shopping Centre Starts Active Screening

Intercity Shopping Centre Starts Active Screening

Starts Monday Feb 22nd

THUNDER BAY, ONTARIO  ~~~~~~   February 21, 2021  (LSN)  Starting Monday, February 22nd, 2021 active shopper screening will occur at our mall doors for all shoppers.

Thunder Bay District Health Unit reports it is a requirement under the provincial reopening framework

New for Red-Control as of February 2021:

  • Capacity limits of:
    • 75% for supermarkets and other stores that primarily sell groceries, convenience stores, pharmacies
    • 50% for all other retail, including discount and big box retailers, liquor stores, hardware stores and garden centres
  • Stores must post capacity limit publicly
  • Stores must have passive screening for patrons (for example, posting signs outside the store front about not entering if you have COVID-19covid 19 symptoms)
    • This does not apply to indoor malls, which are required to actively screen their customers before they enter the mall. Malls can use the patron screening tool to help meet this requirement.

On Intercity's Facebook page they state
To ensure screening is done effectively we will be reducing access into the mall. The entrance closest to Marshall’s and the entrance closest to the former Lowe’s will be the only doors open to the public until the requirement to actively screen is lifted by the Thunder Bay District Health Unit.

The QR code to support public self-screening as shown is added to our website and placed on signs at the entry doors to support our shopper’s preparation for self-screening. Where customers are not able to use cell phones, we will complete a verbal screening questionnaire to confirm they are able to enter the building. You will have to show the completed check mark with date upon entry.
