Target: Stores Limiting Number of Shoppers to Help Reduce Spread of Coronavirus


As Target stores across the country remain open so that people can shop for essentials, the retailer continues to enact new policies designed to promote safety and social distancing.
Starting today April 4, Target will start to “monitor and meter” guest traffic as needed in all of its stores. To reduce the possibility of overcrowding, occupancy limits will be determined by each individual store’s square footage. If limits must be enforced, a Target team member will provide a designated waiting area outside with social distancing markers.
Target will also begin to supply its 350,000+ team members in stores and distribution centers with disposable face masks and gloves at the beginning of every shift.
These items are expected to begin rolling out within the next two weeks, and team members will be “strongly encouraged” to wear them while working. Shoppers with Shipt, the same-day delivery service owned by Target, will also have access to these masks and gloves.
These updates are in addition to the other steps the company has taken recently, including new cleaning procedures, the temporary suspension of all returns, floor decals to promote social distancing, plexiglass partitions at all registers, and contactless order pickup. John Mulligan, Target’s executive vice president and chief operating officer, said in a statement:
“The measures we’re announcing today are aimed at ensuring we are creating a safe environment for the guests who continue to turn to Target, while also providing our team with additional resources as they fulfill an essential service in communities across the country.”
Target has also been encouraging healthy hygiene habits among its staff, investing in higher hourly wages, bonuses, and benefits for frontline team members, and making donations to the medical community. You can read more about the company’s efforts in its most recent press release.
