BLOOMINGTON, Ill.- A grocery store has announced changes to its operations to help protect its employees and customers in response to the outbreak.
“We continue to implement additional ways to adapt at Hy-Vee, so that we can serve our customers and protect the health and wellness of those who work and shop in our stores,” said Hy-Vee’s chairman, CEO and president Randy Edeker.
Hy-Vee will be installing additional temporary window panels on the back side of checkouts to help provide an additional layer of protection for both cashiers and customers.
The panels are in addition to the panels already positioned on the front side of checkouts.
Starting up this weekend Hy-Vee is also placing one-way signs in its aisles. The signage will direct customers to utilize aisles in a way that prevents them from passing each other, in an effort to maintain six feet of social distancing throughout the store.
Starting Monday, April 6, customers will be strongly encouraged to follow a “one person per cart” rule to avoid multiple family members from accompanying a customer on shopping visits.
Hy-Vee is asking that customers try to designate one person per family to visit the store during each visit.
