Protecting Cashiers: Installing Plexiglass Shields and Sneeze Guards at Cash Registers
March 26, 2020
As Covid-19 continues to sweep through the nation, many of our grocery stores and other life-sustaining retail establishments are now finding themselves on the front lines when it comes to helping stop the spread of Covid-19.
The Centers for Disease Control has said that covid-19 is thought to be spread mainly through person to person contact, between people who are within six feet apart, and through respiratory droplets of sick individuals.
Kroger, the nation’s largest supermarket chain, along with their biggest competitor Publix, are installing plexiglass shields at cash registers and urging the federal government to make masks and gloves available to grocery workers and other life-sustaining retail organizations.
“Our associates are on the frontlines, ensuring Americans have access to the food, services, and products they need during this unprecedented pandemic,” a spokesperson from Kroger’s said. “We are committed to protecting the health and safety of our associates.”
Kroger’s anticipates every checkout lane having a partition installed within the next several weeks. They plan on including pharmacy counters and Starbucks registers in this initiative.
Maria Brous, a spokeswoman for Publix, confirmed that the Florida-based supermarket chain will also be putting plexiglass guards or sneeze guards at all checkout lanes, pharmacies, and customer service desks. Chain-wide installation, is set to begin this weekend, with an expected completion date of two weeks.
