A SUPERMARKET has announced it will be making a series of changes in its stores to stop the spread of coronavirus.

New “covid-19 screens” will be placed around tills at more than 7,000 UK stores to protect staff.

There will also be two metre markers installed on the floor, a series of new notices reminding customers of the importance of social distancing and reduced opening hours.

These aim to allow staff to re-stock shelves to counter heightened demand for items such as toilet paper and baked beans following the coronavirus outbreak.

It will also reward “tireless” store and distribution staff with a 10 per cent bonus.

Other new measures include being open between 9.30am and 10am on Sundays to serve only NHS staff and members of the police and fire service.
