@KaySD Well these measures aren't being taken at all WMs. We have to wipe down our own carts with paper towels (the brown commercial ones) and spray sanitizer. Last time I was there they'd run out of the paper towels and set out toilet paper rolls for us to use instead. 🙄

Thanks for the update.  Do you think they'll get rid of the one-way track inside the store?  No other stores around here still do that.   Instead of being in the grocery dept in a minute or two, I have to walk through clothing, home goods, and who knows what else.

Good to get your report, @Libra2 , and know you are well.  I'm sorry the mask is so irksome for lengthy wear, and can well imagine that.

 

Thank you, thank you so much for being an essential worker going in, day after day, making sacrifices and  doing your important job.  You are making your environment and your country better, and so many of us salute your efforts.

You are an inspiration.  When times were tough, you stuck it out.

@Libra2 

You have a hard job and I thank you for what you do!!!  It's not an easy job even in the best of times.  I hope you haven't been getting too many nasty or rude customers.  I know that some people just want to take their nastiness out on the most available person and for no reason.  And the mask thing is still such a sore subject.  People still want to fight about it.  It's no fun for anyone but we need to do it.  Blessings!

I guess Walmart is trying to force people into self checkout. The last time I was there only 2 cashiers open and all the rest were self checkout. Sorry Walmart I don't work for you and I will not check myself out.

@ValuSkr. Our WMs never did the one-way track. Other stores here did and still do it but not our WMs. I notice in our stores that do, most people don't follow it.

My Walmart has erected impenetrable barriers to prevent anyone from going off the track.  It gets a little more porous the further you go, but it's still ridiculous.  Like herding cattle.  I'm glad I have to go there only once in a blue moon.
