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.
Walmart, Kroger and Albertsons are installing plexiglass sneeze guards in the coming weeks to help protect their employees from the spread of coronavirus as they continue to work on the front lines of a public health pandemic. https://t.co/UWwLqt4j32
