Covid-19 Store Safety Measures – FAQs
1. What measures have your stores implemented for customer safety?

These measures include:
Personal protection for employees and customers:
On entering the store, customers have the opportunity to use the hand sanitiser that is provided at the store entrance. We hope that our customers and colleagues will continue to think of others and wear a face covering when in store Perspex screens or cubicles have been installed on tills to help protect customers and employees. Increased in-store cleaning:
Increased frequency and rigor of store cleaning, particularly around high frequency touchpoints such as tills, escalators, lifts, and employee areas in back of house. Customer basket handles will be sanitised on a regular basis.
