National grocery store chain Kroger says it will only allow 50% of each store's capacity in to shop at one time, according to a statement released by the company today.
Starting tomorrow, stores will "limit the number of customers to 50% of the international building code's calculated capacity."
"During this national pandemic, we are committed to adopting preventive measures to help protect the safety and health of our associates, customers and communities," said Mary Ellen Adcock, Kroger's senior vice president of operations, in the statement.
The statement said the chain has also started to test one-way aisles in some stores to see if it is an effective way to further help with physical distancing.
The company operates 2,758 grocery retail stores across the country under a variety of brand names, according to its website.
