Dear Mall Walkers, March 19, 2020
As we are all aware, the Coronavirus pandemic is a constantly evolving public health matter, with daily adjustments and recommendations regarding protocols aimed at limiting its spread.
Excela Health has decided to suspend its Mall Walkers Program until further notice. This action is being taken out of an abundance of caution and in accordance with the Pennsylvania Department of Health’s announcement that highly encourages the cancellation of large gatherings.
Your health and well-being is the cornerstone of all that we do. Our Mall Walkers program is a reflection of the commitment. So is our decision to stop it temporarily.
We look forward to continuing the event once the situation with the Coronavirus abates.
In the interim, please adhere to proper hand hygiene directions and follow the advice of public health departments that are working diligently to address the matter in the most effective and efficient way possible.
And, as always, consider your personal physician as a critically important resource for any questions or concerns you may have on matters that are specific to your particular health status.
Excela Health Mall Walkers
at Westmoreland Mall, Greensburg
Excela Health and Westmoreland Mall have partnered to create the original INDOOR Mall Walkers Program. Now in its NINTH year, walkers in this program meet the fourth Thursday of each month (except November, we meet the THIRD Thursday. We do not meet in December.), 8 to 9:30 a.m. in the Food Court, upper level, Westmoreland Mall, U.S. Route 30, Greensburg for:
- Educational, health-related presentation
- Health screenings
- Light breakfast
- Door prizes/giveaways
- Informational tables featuring our community partners including personal care homes, nursing homes, and others
And, of course, you’ll want to get walking throughout the mall after the fun and every day of the week for the maximum health benefit! A non-competitive walking program, “Mall Walkers” provides members with an array of activities and benefits, plus, it’s a great way to meet new friends and keep active!
