Walmart mandating one-way aisles at its stores during COVID-19 pandemic


Correction: Originally this story said the new measures start beginning Thursday. It should have read the beginning of May.

(KLFY) — Walmart stores updated their response to the coronavirus pandemic by creating one-way aisles to encourage social distancing.

The company is now implementing the change and installing floor decals in all stores by the beginning of May.

The single direction aisles are designed to increase social distancing, Walmart announced.

“One-way aisles are designed to increase social distancing and give customers more space on each aisle.”

New floor decals will be put in place to help indicate the correct traffic flow, Walmart announced.

Green ‘shop this way’ decals indicate you are traveling in the right direction.

Red, ‘do not shop this way’ decals indicate you are traveling in the wrong direction and must turn around.
