HOUSTON, Texas (KTRK) — Although many stores have been encouraged to stay open during the pandemic, one grocer has created a way to keep their cashiers safe and away from potentially sick customers.
Cashiers will now serve customers from behind a sneeze guard. To protect shoppers, H-E-B says it has also designated a new COVID-19 manager at each store responsible for sanitizing twice a day.
That manager will also maintain regular food sanitation and monitor lines to ensure customers keep safe distances from each other.
Earlier in the week, H-E-B also announced its plans to pay staff an extra $2 until April 16 amid the state of emergency.
