Aldi Updates Customers On Safety Measures During Covid-19 Pandemic

Aldi Covid-19

Batavia, Illinois-based Aldi has issued an update on what it is doing to keep its stores safe for employees and customers during the Covid-19 pandemic.

“As we navigate this constantly changing environment, the health and safety of our employees and our customers continues to be our top priority,” the company says.

The entire Aldi team is working around the clock to keep stores clean and stocked. The company is installing protective barriers at checkout and making gloves and masks available to associates who would like them. It has added social distancing signage across all stores and increased the frequency of cart cleaning.

As part of its continued efforts to ensure the well-being of its employees and customers, Aldi is introducing additional safety measures in its stores. These include:

  • New Store Occupancy Limits: Effective Thursday, April 9, Aldi is limiting the number of people inside its stores to approximately five customers per 1,000 s.f.

To be certain these limits are followed, team members will be stationed outside each store cleaning carts and keeping track of customers as they enter and exit.

Aldi will admit shoppers into the store one at a time. The company may enforce a brief delay between customers to allow for adequate space between customers as they enter.

Aldi will be allowing any medical professionals, with identification, immediate access to the front of any lines that may form outside its stores.

If a line forms outside our store, customers are asked to stand at least six feet away from the person in front of them and maintain that safe distance throughout their entire shopping experience. Team members will help remind shoppers of this as well.

Aldi is asking customers to limit their shopping to one person per family. “We recognize that may not be possible in certain circumstances and will make exceptions for any customer who needs to shop with children or assist a vulnerable shopper,” the company says.

  • Temporary One-Way Aisles: Inside the store, Aldi will be rolling out one-way aisles to better manage the flow of traffic and help customers maintain social distance from each other and its team members. In-store signage will direct shoppers through the store.
  • Temperature Checks: Over the course of this week, Aldi will begin taking the temperatures of its store and warehouse employees. In addition, it will have them answer a few basic health screening questions before reporting to work. Any employee with a fever of 100.0 or higher will be sent home. Employees must be free of all symptoms for at least 72 hours before returning to work.
