Cielo Vista Mall and Sunland Park Mall are temporarily limiting their hours of operation in response to the coronavirus crisis and health official’s warnings.

The modified hours for both malls are 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. Monday through Saturday, and 12 p.m. to 6 p.m. Sunday until further notice. On its website, Cielo Vista Mall management suggested people call or check the website of each store they plan to shop for individual operating hours.

Sunland Park Mall has taken the additional steps of closing the food hall area and play area, cancelling its annual photos with the Easter Bunny, and pressing pause on the Saturday Morning Cartoons events. Although the cancellation of photos with the Easter Bunny is not mentioned specifically on the Cielo Vista Mall website, all previous links to it have disappeared.
