Sainsbury’s issues urgent reminder to customers about shopping in-store

England will go into a second national lockdown on Thursday, but luckily essential shops such as supermarkets will stay open.

But it is important customers adhere to strict rules in order to help stop the spread of coronavirus.

Throughout 2020 Brits have gotten used to social distancing and disinfecting trolleys.

But now Sainsbury’s has issued an urgent warning to customers in order to help slow the spread further.

The supermarket is asking people who can to only send one adult to stores.

Sainsbury’s tweeted: “To avoid overcrowding please shop one adult at a time”.

On the website, the supermarket chain further expands what they mean by this rule.

It says: “We are asking everyone to only send one adult per household to our shops where possible.

“This helps us keep people a safe distance apart and also helps to reduce queues to get into stores.”

If Sainsbury’s staff members see bigger groups of people, they may ask they to choose one adult to send into store.

The update explains: “Our store teams will be asking groups with more than one adult to choose one adult to shop and will ask other adults to wait.

“Children are welcome if they are not able to stay at home.”

Sainsbury’s also asks customers to follow official guidelines for shopping in-store, including wearing a face covering.

Customers are urged to keep a “safe distance from other customers and from our colleagues”, and to follow the “clear markings on floors”.

Sainsbury’s has also reduced the number of customers allowed in-store at any one time, and reduced the number of checkouts.
