The mall itself remained open as of Monday morning, as did the Fantasyland Hotel and West Edmonton Mall Inn. It said in a statement that some tenants had opted to reduce operating hours.

The mall made the announcement Sunday night, just hours after the province announced that all schools in the province would close.
