Quoted from PinJim:
Really? So we can stand in line, 3’ from each other while people with the snot nosed kids cough and sneeze around me? Right, make sense. Thanks for clarifying.
Around me they’ve gone to limiting 50 ppl max in grocery stores, plexiglass sneeze guards set up at check outs, hand wash stations, sanitizer, wipe down of cart handles etc. 6’ spacing (Marks on the floor) at check out in a separated line which is pretty easy to abide by when you have a cart.
The issue arises when you’re in the aisles though, it’s impossible to maintain 6’ when you have 2 or more people in an aisle and one wants to pass the other. Walmart tried to mitigate this by marking the aisles as one ways, but no one was following the signs yesterday when I went. Good idea in theory, but no one to enforce it. Also the online order pickers are in all the aisles with their huge picking carts blocking half the aisle.
Costco recently put in a limit of 2 ppl shopping per card because families were taking their kids to do Costco runs and wasting max capacity in store lol.
