Additional changes that are taking place to address the coronavirus pandemic include limited store capacity per location, installed social distancing decals and sanitizer stations throughout the stores as well as plexiglass barriers at cash registers and enhanced sanitation practices for surfaces and shopping carts.
Store associates will have their temperature monitored and wear personal protective equipment such as face coverings like masks and shields in addition to gloves.
Curbside pickup, delivery services and contactless payment systems will be available for customers who want to take extra precautions when shopping at Kroger.
The updated store information page on Kroger's website has a list of locations that have adjusted store hours, however, it is not clear if this is still in effect with the company's most recent announcement. The page was last updated on May 24.
Kroger stores have been operating with adjusted hours since March nationwide.
