Supermarkets not limiting number of in-store shoppers

Local grocery stores in the area are not yet at the point of taking the measures Walmart imposed this past weekend in managing the COVID-19 crisis.  Walmart is allowing five customers for every 1,000 feet of shopping space and counting customers one by one before entering the store.  Jon Calhoun, store manager of Econofoods says Walmart’s store size would mean about a 500 customer limit.



Calhoun adds that Econofoods personnel and customers are told to keep social distancing in aisles and checkout areas.  Alex Stodola from Stodola’s IGA in Luxemburg, one of the largest stores in Kewaunee County, is also not keeping track of the number of shoppers entering the store.  They are asking that households send only one person to shop and to stay behind the plexiglass screen at checkout while practicing social distancing throughout the store and wearing masks as the CDC has recommended.
