NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — Two major retailers are making changes to control social distancing in stores during the coronavirus pandemic.

Walmart will regulate store entry by only allowing a maximum of five customers inside for each 1,000 square feet of space. That’s about 20% of a store’s capacity.

Once at capacity, customers can only go into the store on a “one out, one in” basis.

Walmart will also make shopping aisles one way to keep people away from each other.
