Intermarché, Franprix, Leclerc … Some supermarkets are tightening up the instructions for shopping

Certain measures have already been implemented in supermarkets in mid-March: distance of one meter between customers, masks and gloves given to staff, preferred credit card payment, priority for nursing staff, etc. But that does not seem sufficient: the non-respect of the instructions or the inappropriate behavior of certain customers seem to continue. Supermarkets have therefore decided, locally or nationally, to implement even more drastic measures in stores to further combat the spread of Covid-19.

Here are some examples of measures taken in supermarkets in recent days:

One caddy = one person in store

Faced with the crowds that most supermarkets experienced last week, some stores decided to react: they now ask that the French do their shopping alone. And that a shopping cart or a cart is only pushed by a single customer.

Plastic gloves are available at the entrance of the supermarket to be able to shop safely

The specialist in mass distribution, Olivier Dauvers, indicates in a tweet that at the entrance of the Grand Frais store in Cesson-Sévigné in Ille-et-Vilaine (35), plastic gloves are offered to customers in order to guarantee optimal sanitary conditions. An initiative difficult to generalize given the lack of gloves in the country.

No child is accepted inside the store anymore ‘except in urgent cases’

The grouping of people is prohibited during the confinement period, the signs try to limit the number of customers present to do their shopping as much as possible. In the Leclerc supermarket in Montévrain in Seine-et-Marne (77), the instructions have been clear since last weekend: no more children are allowed in stores, says a post on the store’s Facebook page. Except in “compelling cases”, a parent living alone with a child too small to stay at home, for example.
