Coles shoppers to pack their own groceries under new safety measures

Coles has unveiled a string of new health and safety measures, to limit the risk of spreading the virus in store.

Supermarkets will remain a critical service throughout the next few months, no matter how strict Australia’s lockdown measures become.

The supermarket giant has this morning released new practices that will be rolled out immediately, to keep shoppers and employers safe.

It includes asking shoppers to pack their own bags at the check out, to limit contact between staff and the public.

People who are sick, not just from coronavirus, are being asked not to come into the store at all.

While shoppers are also being asked to wash or sanitise their hands before coming into any store.

Special directions will also be provided at checkouts to make sure people in queues don’t get closer together.

Coles will also spend an extra $1 million a week on extra cleaning and security guards.

Meantime, Woolworths has this morning put the call out for another 20,000 workers, to keep up supply both in store and online.
