Walmart says they will begin temperature checks and making masks and gloves available for employees in stores in the United States.
Walmart made the announcement in a Twitter post Tuesday morning, saying “to better serve our customers and promote a safe and healthy workplace for our associates, we are taking the following actions in our U.S.-based stores, clubs and supply chain locations over the next few weeks:
- Gaking the temperatures of our associates as they report to work, as well as asking them some basic health screening questions
- Making masks and gloves available, as supplies permit, for associates who want to wear them
- Continuing to take steps to promote social distancing”
“This week we are also sharing a new framework with associates regarding healthy behaviors at work,” Walmart’s corporate website says. “We’re asking them to remember three numbers: 6, 20 and 100.
- 6 feet is the amount of space people should keep from others, when possible, to maintain social distancing.
- 20 seconds is the amount of time people should take to wash their hands with soap and water.
- And 100 is the temperature that someone should stay home with.”
