Mayor’s Guidance on Grocery Stores and Masks
The Mayor issued an order on social distancing protocols at indoor retail food sellers, like grocery stores and convenience stores. Among the provisions, retail food sellers will have to post signs at each entrance instructing all customers to wear a mask or mouth covering. (Check the CDC for helpful information on making or fashioning your own mask at home) Further, the order asks that stores create one-way aisles where possible and limit the number of people who can be in the store at one time. Stores must also provide adequate hand sanitizers or disinfecting wipes at all entry and exit ways and throughout the store. By April 20, 2020, stores generally serving more than 50 people in a day must install plexiglass or plastic dividers between customers and employees.
