COLORADO SPRINGS — In response to the growing concerns around COVID-19, and in accordance with the Colorado state mandate, the ownership of the Chapel Hills & Citadel malls have decided to close the shopping center until further notice, per a release.
"We have been closely tracking developments related to COVID-19 and have been following the guidance of authorities, ensuring that above all else, our patrons, merchants, and employees are safe and healthy," a statement read from Mason Assent Management and Namdar Realty group. "The situation has indeed evolved, and in accordance with the state mandate and with our community in mind, we have temporarily closed all Colorado malls until further notice. We sincerely appreciate our diligent team's work in maintaining a safe and clean environment over the last few weeks, and we hope to re-open as soon as possible."
The closure is specific to nonessential business, as essential businesses will remain open.
