With the stay-at-home mandate expiring Friday, May 1, numerous Houston-area retailers are opening their doors.

As CultureMap reported, Simon Property Group, which owns three Houston-area malls, announced they will reopen May 1. The Galleria, Houston Premium Outlets, and Katy Mills will enforce safety protocols to all tenants, shoppers, and guests.

Houstonians are encouraged to take precautionary measures when shopping by abiding by retailers' reduced hours and wearing a mask. Retailers who are reopening say they will carefully and cautiously continue to maintain a safe environment by enforcing employees to wear masks, disinfecting and cleaning more frequently, and limiting the number of shoppers in-store.
