NFT: Has anyone been at Woodbury Commons during the Pandemic?

BestFeature : 11/20/2020 7:30 pm
I was invited to go tomorrow. It's extremely enticing because I've been bored out of my mind lately. However, I worried about jumping from store to store with a ton of people during a pandemic, especially now that cases are up significantly. Has anyone been there since the pandemic started? Do they take precautions? Is it somewhat safe to go?

Thanks!
I guess it's Woodbury Common not Commons

with both my daughters on the way home from a few days in upstate NY.

1) At 4 PM until closing on a weekday it wasn't crowded compared to the usual pre pandemic mob.

2) Many people, but not all, outside wore masks.

3) Inside stores, mask wearing was 100% enforced.

Anything else you want to know? With traffic slow, there were a crazy # of good sales... But that's true everywhere now.
Early September, it was.

I read that they limit the amount of people in stores, is that true and if so are there lines?

Thanks for your response!

Thank you, that's the thing early September we had a tenth of the cases. Though, keeping it in context NY is still one of the better states in the US per capital looking at a map.
No lines. Perhaps I understated how relatively

empty the place was. Several times I was among 2-3 people or even the only person shopping in a given store.

It was very quiet there. Virtually all the food vendors were closed.

My sense was there was more "concern", at least among the citizenry, at that time than now, despite rising national case counts.

NYC was a mess then, no?
Shopping malls in general. It gives me more confidence when

there is a person stationed at the door who regulates how many people are allowed in the store at one time.

covid is vertical right now all the kids home from school. Going to Woodbury would be a risk.
Ironically, I drove by it yesterday

and it was packed, which is a significant risk right now, despite mask wearing measures, etc. If it were me I would not go.
In addition to college kids, holiday shoppers etc

they run busload after busload of people from NYC up there, so you're bringing it out of the boroughs for the day too.
