Even with the vaccine becoming more and more available, the responsibility to keep customers safe is still a challenge that every mall has to meet.
On June 26, 2021, Evia Lifestyle Center, Vista Mall’s premiere flagship branch, was awarded the Safety Seal joint certification issued by the Departments of Health, Labor, Interior and Local Government, Tourism and Trade and Industry in a ceremony held at Evia Lifestyle Center, Las Piñas. This certification is a guarantee that Evia has met the minimum public health standards set by the government in managing the pandemic in aid of the reopening of the economy. The Safety Seal certifies that it is safe to navigate the new normal again in these malls, without worrying about the unnecessary risks of going out.
Safety seals have been awarded to Vista Malls and Starmalls nationwide since the launch of the program, and is part of their commitment to provide a safe and convenient malling experience for all their customers while they #NavigateTheNewNormal.
