Walmart Limits Customers: Five Per 1000 Square Feet

Reuters reports:

Walmart said on Friday it would limit the number of customers in a store at a time, starting April 4, to encourage social distancing among its customers. It said it will now allow no more than five customers per 1,000 square feet at a given time and that they would be admitted one by one and counted by store associates.

The step is in addition to other measures the world’s largest retailer has taken to curb the spread of the coronavirus, including rolling out staff temperature checks, providing masks and gloves and expanding paid leave policies. Walmart also said it would implement a one-way movement through aisles in some stores by next week.
