Sainsbury’s to enforce wearing of masks and shopping alone policies in stores
Sainsbury’s Chief Executive Simon Roberts wrote to shoppers yesterday advising that the company are to begin enforcing more fully the policies of wearing masks and shopping alone within their stores.
“I have spent a lot of time in our stores over the past few days and I need to ask for your help with two key issues to keep you and all my colleagues safe.
“When shopping in our stores, you must wear a mask or visor unless you have a medical exemption. And you should also shop on your own. Thank you for your support.”
Mr Roberts has warned customers that security guards will support store colleagues who will challenge shoppers not wearing masks, and those shopping in groups.
“Security guards will support our colleagues at the front of store and will challenge customers who are not wearing masks or who are shopping in groups. I know you’ll understand and support what we are trying to do.
“We have also significantly reduced the number of customers allowed in our stores at any one time to ensure social distancing is maintained at all times.
“Together, these steps will go a long way to keep everyone safe, whether you are shopping or working with us.
“Please wear a mask or visor and please shop alone in our stores. Thank you for helping us to keep everyone safe.”
