Grocers Install Sneeze Guards To Protect Cashiers

USA Today reports:

Retailers have reduced store hours to make time for deep cleanings and now are adding a new layer of protection – sneeze guards.

Walmart and some of the nation’s largest grocery store chains – Kroger and Albertsons – are installing plexiglass barriers or partitions to help prevent the spread of the coronavirus and protect both shoppers and store employees.

The protective screens will stand between a customer and a cashier so that any airborne droplets – either from a cough or a sneeze – will be blocked from hitting the person on the other side.
