Malls across America are making plans to have social distancing Santa visits this holiday season. Some malls are going to offer Zoom calls while others are doing in-person visits. Santa and all guests will be required to wear coronavirus masks. No kids will be allowed to sit on Santa’s lap and instead will sit six feet away on wrapped gifts or benches. Some malls plan to place Santa inside a giant snow globe while other malls will place him behind a giant plexiglass picture frame.
