Walmart limits store traffic to 5 customers per 1K square feet

Retail Dive
Walmart has joined Target in limiting customer traffic in its stores.

In a corporate post on Friday, the retail giant said that effective Saturday it would not allow more than five customers per 1,000 square feet in its stores at any time, which would represent about 20% of its store capacity.
To do that, Walmart staff will set up a queue at the door. Once stores reach capacity, customers will be allowed in on a "1-out-1-in" basis. In many stores, Walmart will use floor markers to create one-way movement as part of its effort to encourage social distancing.. . . more
