Francis Scott Key Mall strives to create a safe and secure environment for mall staff and consumers. As news of the spread of the COVID-19, novel coronavirus, continues to dominate the public domain, we wanted to bring you up to speed on measures we are taking to keep our public space as safe as possible.

With that in mind, we are following orders of state officials to close the Francis Scott Key Mall facility to the public. Francis Scott Key Mall will be temporarily closed starting at 5pm on March 19, 2020. Please check back or sign up to receive our emails for updates.

Our Housekeeping contractor has trained their staff in personal protocols that include proper personal handwashing, staying home if they are sick, covering coughing and sneezing with a tissue and avoiding contact with their eyes, nose and mouths.
