Following the tightening of coronavirus restrictions, Sainsbury’s has announced some major changes to its stores.

They involve changing who can shop in-stores at any given time.

Due to the rising number of coronavirus cases across the country, the supermarket chain is telling customers to shop “one adult at a time”.

Sainsbury’s has announced this change, hoping it will “keep people a safe distance apart”, and because it also “helps to reduce quests to get into stores”.

That means only people who are shopping alone will be let into the store.

Staff at Sainsbury’s stores will be asking groups with more than one adult to only choose one to send inside.

The other adults will be asked to wait outside the shop.

Those with children are welcome to bring them into store, providing they aren’t able to stay at home.

Sainsbury’s is also limiting the number of people in stores at any given time.

A statement from the supermarket chain adds: “We have also put queuing systems in place outside our stores and ask you to queue at a safe distance of two metres apart."

The statement continues: “Please try to keep a safe distance from other customers and from our colleagues when you are doing your shop.

“We have placed clear markings on shop floors to help you know what a safe distance is.”

Sainsbury’s also urges you to follow official guidelines for your local area, and wear a face covering.

Greeters will be on hand outside all supermarkets and busy convenience stores to remind customers to wear a face mask when entering a store.

If you don’t have one, a colleague will help you find one.
