As the holiday shopping season gets underway, Walmart has again begun monitoring and counting how many consumers enter its facilities as the nation sees an uptick in COVID-19 cases.
In a statement from a Walmart spokesperson, the stores never reached its self-imposed 20 percent metering capacity during the monitored months.
“Walmart began limiting capacity in our stores to 20% in early April, or lower if mandated by a local government, and that limit has remained in place since then,” a Walmart spokesperson said in a statement. “Out of an abundance of caution, we have resumed counting the number of people entering and leaving our stores.”
There have been more than 113,000 new COVID-19 cases within the past month.
