- Limit the number of customers to no more than 50% of their approved capacity.
- Require workers to wear cloth face coverings while on the premises
- Demarcate six feet of spacing in check-out lines.
- Provide special shopping hours for high-risk individuals, erect physical barriers between customers and cashiers and baggers where practicable, regularly sanitize areas used by their employees, & more.
Customers of those stores must also wear cloth face coverings while on the premises, including at restaurants and bars for take-out orders (with exemptions for children under 2 and for people where a face covering inhibits their health).
