Application of New Normal in the Mall
The Covid-19 pandemic has hit the Indonesian economy. No exception Indonesian retail entrepreneurs. Many malls are closed. Although in some areas there are still malls that are open, shoppers visiting the mall have decreased dramatically because of the Covid-19 outbreak.
Meanwhile there are no new Indonesian normal rules for reopening the malls. Even so, the health protocol refers to the provisions that had been running during the Covid-19 pandemic.

For example by using masks and checking body temperature. Likewise the physical distancing rules in all business locations will continue to be applied.
Furthermore, the Middle Eastern countries that started new normal application first were the United Arab Emirates (UAE).

United Arab Emirates (UAE) is a country in the region that first entered new normal, which chose to make peace with corona by opening quarantine at the end of April.
Residents welcomed the release from quarantine with joy. They convoyed and packed a number of malls, especially in Dubai. This step was taken in order to provide a breather for the economic impasse faced by a country which has been enjoying abundant fortune from the tourism, investment and energy sectors.

Quarantine, which has been in effect for weeks since the outbreak of corona in the region, has caused local governments to take quarantine steps that have led to economic collapse, leading to considerable state expenditure in providing financial incentives to the private sector. If left unchecked this will cause a serious economic crisis.

Therefore, the UAE became the first country in the Middle East to adopt a new normal policy by opening quarantine and implementing loose policies, especially in the economic sector.
In Qatar the government began to impose new normal on 6/15/2020 by allowing several mosques to reopen, in addition to the mosque also allowing some shops in the mall to be opened by meeting certain conditions.

Egypt began to open its tourism sector by limiting the number of tourists entering the area
In Jordan, new normals began to re-open places of worship and schools.

This possibility will encourage other countries to participate in the implementation of new normal by reopening public facilities and offices to operate in the hope that it can restore the economy that was devastated by the co-19 pandemic.
