Kroger announced today beginning April 7th, the retailer will limit the number of customers to 50% of the building code’s calculated capacity to allow for social distancing.  By illustration, that means Kroger will now allow 1 customer for every 60 square feet in the store. 

“Kroger’s introduction of customer capacity limits is one more way we are doing our part to flatten the curve while operating as an essential business, providing our customers with access to fresh, affordable food and products,” said Mary Ellen Adcock, Kroger’s senior vice president of operations. “During this national pandemic, we are committed to adopting preventive measures to help protect the safety and health of our associates, customers and communities.”

The count will be monitored by QueVision technology system, which the retailer already uses to provide predictive analytics to their stores.

The retailer will also begin providing masks and gloves for all employees beginning this week.  Regular temperature checks for associates will be arriving soon at all Kroger run stores.
