Kroger utilizing masks, gloves, plexiglass partitions

Kroger is taking additional steps to protect workers and customers during the coronavirus pandemic.


The Ohio-based grocery chain says it is asking the government for help securing protective masks and gloves for its workers.


Kroger will soon begin installing plexiglass partitions at many cash registers, to promote social distancing. The partitions will be placed at every checkout lane, pharmacy counter, and Starbucks register in Kroger stores.


The grocery chain will also install floor decals to promote physical distancing at checklanes and other counters.


“These and other recently announced steps will help Kroger ensure the safety of associates and help our communities flatten the curve while at the same time meeting our obligation to be there for our customers,” the company said in a statement.
