KANSAS CITY, MO (KCTV) – Grocery retailer Hy-Vee is continuing to add precautions in an effort to slow the spread of the coronavirus.
In a release Friday, the company announced that it would be adding a back-panel window to checkout stands in addition to the existing front panels already in place in stores.
The stores will also begin putting out one-way signs in their aisles over the weekend to direct customers to shop in a way to prevent them from passing each other too closely and to help encourage social distancing guidelines of staying six feet apart.
Starting Monday, Hy Vee is also encouraging customers to follow a “one person per cart” rule in an effort to limit the total number of people in the stores at a given time.
Besides these moves, the company has already limited hours at stores, staying open from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. for the general public with an early access hour at 7 a.m. for older shoppers or those with other underlying health conditions.
The store has also offer special pick-up and delivery hours for those groups more susceptible to this illness.
