Santa Claus is still coming to the mall despite the pandemic. There are some changes this year including banning kids from sitting on his knee. Children can tell Santa what they want for Christmas from six feet away and in some cases from behind a sheet of plexiglass.
You will of course have to wear a mask when going to visit Santa at the mall. Reservations will be required to cut down on lines and workers will be wiping everything down, as well as providing hand sanitizer. Some malls will even use props such as he gift boxes and decorations to keep children socially distanced from St. Nick.
