“We know that our community has been waiting to return, but it was important to us that we took the proper time and precautions needed to welcome guests back in the safest possible manner,” said Mark Ghermezian, co-CEO at American Dream. “The last several months have been difficult for everyone, and even though we are still adjusting to the new normal, we are confident that we can provide guests a safer environment to make dreams come true for everyone, everywhere, as well as create much needed job opportunities in New Jersey.”

In compliance with local government and CDC guidelines, American Dream will require all guests to wear face coverings, and it will operate at a reduced capacity. Hand sanitizer stations will be available throughout the complex. In order to encourage physical distancing among guests and employees, the retail complex will utilize ground markings, touchless programs, plexiglass barriers and more. Signage will also be visible throughout the complex and attractions reminding guests of health and safety measures.

More announcements will be released as more experiences and retailers continue to reopen in the future.
