COLUMBUS (WCMH) — Meijer announced that they’re limiting the number of shoppers who come into the store and will conduct health screens on its team members.

Meijer says these new guidelines are to protect customers and staff through social distancing.

A press release states that Meijers will limit the amount of shoppers in their store and will take temperatures of its team members.

The store asks its customers to limit the number of people who come along to shop.

“We continue to look for additional ways to ensure the safety of our customers and team members in the face of this difficult challenge,” Meijer President & Chief Executive Officer Rick Keyes said. “By working together, we can reduce the spread of this virus and help keep our communities safe.”

The retailer’s new guidelines are below:

• Asking customers to limit the number of shoppers per trip, while understanding that some customers may need additional assistance.

• Implementing processes to monitor the number of customers in our stores. This includes managing the number of customers shopping to support proper social distancing practices.

• Conducting daily health screenings and temperature checks of team members as they arrive at the store.

• Completing installation of protective plexiglass shields at all check lanes and pharmacies in its 248 supercenters and stores.

• Adding signage and broadcast announcements inside the store educating customers about proper social distancing.

• Temporarily suspending the weekly sales ad beginning April 12 to decrease customer count inside the store.

Meijer says these new steps supplement the previous actions the retailer has implemented.
