U.S. (ECWd) –
I recieved an update from Illinois Representative Brad Halbrook this morning regarding Walmart and their new policy.
“As the COVID-19 situation continues to develop, Walmart’s focus remains on the health and safety of our associates, customers and communities. I wanted to share with you the latest measures we’ve taken in our U.S. stores to promote health, safety and consistency in this environment, including regulating store entry and changes to the shopping process inside our stores.”
“Starting Saturday, April 4, we will limit the number of customers who can be in a store at once. Stores will now allow no more than five customers for each 1,000 square feet at a given time, roughly 20 percent of a store’s capacity. Once a store reaches its capacity, customers will be admitted inside on a “1-out-1-in” basis.”
“Also, we will institute one-way movement through our aisles next week in a number of our stores, using floor markers and direction from associates. We expect this to help more customers avoid coming into close contact with others as they shop.”
