Cadillac Fairview stated in a memo shared on Twitter that the change was being made in preparation for an incoming wave of GTA shoppers.

Mandatory screenings will reportedly be held on a daily basis at the mall's entrances.

Regular hours aren't expected to resume until January 2, 2021.

At the moment, Toronto, Peel and York regions are all in lockdown which bans residents from indoor shopping.

Vaughan Mills made similar preparations last month in anticipation of a flood of shoppers.

However, York Region was placed in the grey zone last week, closing the shopping centre for the holidays.
