Walmart to Resume Counting and Monitoring Customers

Walmart has resumed counting and monitoring the number of customers that enter and leave its stores. This comes as coronavirus cases in the United States hit daily highs.

In April, the company began restricting the number of people to 20% of its store capacity, or lower if mandated by local officials. But for a brief period of time, its stores stopped counting the number of customers that entered its stores.

Walmart will form single-file lines at the entrance and be given sanitized shopping carts. “Health Ambassadors” will be stationed at entrances to remind people to put on their masks. Social distancing will be enforced inside with capacity controls and one-way lanes.

Other store chains, such as Kroger, have begun reinstating purchase limits on items, such as toilet paper, paper towels and disinfecting wipes. The moves come as grocery stores look to prevent shoppers from hoarding and “panic buying” — like before when the pandemic first hit in the spring.
