Safety Measures.

IGA retailers are keeping our stores safe for shoppers with additional safety measures, including:

  1. Closing self-serve stations such as salad, hot and coffee bars and converting into full-service stations when possible.
  2. Offering dedicated store hours for the elderly and immunocompromised to ensure they can safely shop the store.
  3. Installing sanitation stations throughout the store for shoppers and shopping carts. If that is not possible, having employees manage the process and sanitizing between each customer use.
  4. Posting reminders for staff and shoppers about proper hand washing protocol (see IGA available signage).
  5. Encouraging social distancing when in the store—for both shoppers and employees.
  6. Placing tape on the floor to keep customers adequately spaced in high-volume traffic areas such as checkout lines.
