Like HEB taking necessary steps restocking shelves in a timely manner and opening positions for those affected by the coronavirus pandemic, Walmart has taken necessary steps in keeping their workers and customers safe. Store managers will begin taking employees’ temperatures before coming into work. This new policy will also affect Sam’s Club employees. Each employee who has a temperature of 100 degrees or higher will be sent home.
In the event of an employee being sent home, they will still be paid for that day. However, won’t be allowed back until they’ve been fever-free for three full days, per the new policy. An addition to this policy Walmart will also be supplying workers with masks and gloves to wear during their shifts.
