Pritzker Issues Stricter Social Distancing Guidelines for Grocery Stores

CHICAGO (AP) – Governor J.B. Pritzker is issuing stricter social distancing guidelines for grocery stores in Illinois.

Pritzker announced Saturday he’s working with the Illinois Retail Merchants Association to create “a new best practice” and procedures for grocery stores.

New measures include cashier barriers and six-foot markers placed on floors to space out customers at checkouts.

Stores are also being encouraged to prohibit the use of reusable bags and encourage curbside pickup and delivery services.
