Coles Has Announced Some New Store Rules

Mar 27, 2020


Coles has told shoppers to pack their own groceries to limit the spread of coronavirus as the supermarket giant unveiled new rules aimed at keeping shoppers and staff safe in stores.

According to 9 News:

Shoppers have been told they must not enter stores if they are sick, and should handle their own bags and pack their own groceries to limit the risk of spreading the virus.

They have also been asked to wash or sanitise their hands before entering stores and shoppers must stay 1.5 metres away from others at all times.

Special directions will be provided at checkouts to make sure people in queues don't get too close together.

"We know this is a big change for customers, and we are asking that we can all work together and make that happen from today," Coles Chief Operations Officer Matt Swindells told 9News.
