Harford Mall is closing at 5 p.m. Thursday in accordance with Gov. Larry Hogan’s order for all enclosed shopping malls to shutter to stop the spread of the novel coronavirus.
Three malls in Maryland and multiple anchor and specialty stores across the country, including Macy’s, one of the Harford Mall’s anchors, had already closed on their own.
On its website, the Harford Mall noted that certain restaurants with exterior entrances may remain open for curbside pick-up and delivery services.
Earlier in the week, Hogan ordered restaurants and bars closed, but allowed for carryout and delivery of food.
The Greene Turtle Sports Bar & Grille, Bonefish Grill, Red Robin, Five Guys Burgers & Fries, Qdoba Mexican Grill and Pure Raw Juice were listed on the mall’s website as remaining open.
Harford Mall had previously canceled events, including Easter photos, at the mall last week, but had maintained regular mall hours until the governor’s order Thursday.
