by Press release

DINE IN SERVICE NOW OPEN -- Dine in service at SM City Baguio has resumed but all establishments follow the 50 percent seating capacity rule to observe physical distancing while sanitation teams are making the rounds making sure that chairs and tables are sanitized before and after customers dine-in. -- Contributed photo

Restaurants and other food merchants at SM malls have begun reopening their stores for dine-in services, after the government relaxed quarantine measures in select areas nationwide following the directives given by the Inter-Agency Task Force (IATF).

Several restaurants and food establishments, including the SM Food Court, have reopened with standard health protocols to bring back the fun in dining out and still guarantee employee and customer safety.

Dining establishments and other food merchants are allowed to operate at 30 percent to 50 percent of their total capacity in the meantime.

To ensure safety while dining, diners are advised to wear face masks, follow diagonal or solo seating to observe safe distancing, and avoid using seats and tables with markers.

Sneeze shields at cashiers and touch-free cashless payment options are also mounted to minimize physical contact.

Contactless sanitizing stations, one-way foot traffic floor markers, and regular disinfection of facilities are also in place.

Customers are advised to follow the three-step dining etiquette: buy food from mall restaurant, stay for a quick bite, and clean as you go.

SM transformed its open areas, such as event centers and atrium, traditionally used for fun and recreational events into extended dine-in halls with solo or diagonal seating to give customers extra space for a quick bite given the restaurants’ 50 percent maximum capacity.

For SM City Baguio, the mall atrium currently serves as a waiting area with solo seating arrangements for pick-up and take-out transactions from restaurants.

SM City Baguio also has outdoor seating for fresh air fun dining moments, even at a distance from each other.

The designated extended dining areas are part of SM’s continuing effort to promote health and safety and bring back the fun in dining out through its #SafeMallingAtSM campaign.
