TULSA, Okla. — Green Country’s largest shopping center is one of the latest businesses to shut their doors in the effort to protect people against the coronavirus.
Woodland Hills Mall, as of 7 p.m. Wednesday, is closed through March 29.
Management says they are following the CDC's guidelines.
The closure means a big loss for stores, and it comes during spring break, a week that is one of the biggest for stores.
"I view it as we wanted to stay on top of it," said Mike Moore, the manager and owner of Tradehome Shoes. "As a company, we had a meeting this morning and discussed the health of each employee.”
Woodland Hills visitor, Ron Patkoff said, “We understand. We may not like it, but we need to look at the bigger picture of why they’re doing it."
The management of Tulsa's other mall, Promenade, said they will stay open as long as possible, but will have modified hours starting Friday.
The new hours are 11 a.m. to 7 p.m Monday through Saturday. On Sundays, noon to 6 p.m.
Though, not all of Promenade's stores are open. 10 are closed and 16 have their own modified hours.
