Asda outlines social distancing measures
Asda is implementing a range of social distancing measures to help keep staff and customers stay two metres apart while visiting its shops.
These include markers on the floor, directional barriers and new signage and announcements. When necessary, it will also be placing a limit on the number of customers in-store at any one time.
Further measures include asking customers to only touch products they are purchasing and encouraging them to use cashless payment methods wherever possible.
The retailer is also installing perspex screens at its checkouts, pharmacies and service desks and closing every other ‘Scan and Go’ checkout to help maintain distance.
In a message to shoppers, Asda chief executive Roger Burnley said: “I want you to know that everyone at Asda is working tirelessly to make sure you have the essentials your family needs and that you can shop in our stores safely if you need to visit us.
“We’re working hard to protect you and our colleagues – please help us to do so by following the guidelines in place. My colleagues in our stores are working under incredible pressure to serve you – and I am hugely grateful to them for their efforts. Please be kind to them when you visit us – we’re all in this together.”
