Coronavirus: Asda and Marks & Spencer introduce more in-store safety measures

Asda and Marks & Spencer have introduced further anti-coronavirus measures in-store

Asda and Marks & Spencer have both implemented further in-store initiatives designed to keep staff and shoppers as safe as possible during the coronavirus outbreak.

Measures include limiting the number of customers allowed in shops at any one time and markers on the floor to ensure social distancing and the installation of protective screens at checkouts.

Asda greeters at store entrances will manage the flow of customers and make hand sanitiser available, and the grocer has asked shoppers to use cashless payment if possible.
