Target is taking some extra steps to protect its customers and employees during this time of uncertainty.

Monitoring and metering in stores

Starting on April 4th, Target CEO Brian Cornell announced, the store will be closely monitoring the amount of customers that are in the store at one time.

It’s important that our guests have enough space to shop safely and comfortably. So beginning April 4, Target will actively monitor and, when needed, limit the total number of people inside based on the store’s specific square footage. If metering is needed, a team member will help guests into a designated waiting area outside with social distancing markers, while others will guide guests inside the store and keep things moving quickly and conveniently. It’s another step to encourage social distancing, on top of the signage, floor decals and audio messages already in place at our stores.

Employee Safety

Target has also announced that over the next 2 weeks they will begin providing gloves and masks to all of their in store and distribution center employees and Shipt Delivery Service drivers.

Over the next two weeks, Target will begin providing all team members in our stores and distribution centers with high-quality, disposable face masks and gloves at the beginning of every shift, and strongly encourage our teams to wear them while working. We’ll also provide masks and gloves to Shipt shoppers as they enter our stores. That’s on top of enhancements we’ve made in recent weeks, including our rigorous cleaning routines, Plexiglass partitions at our checklanes and other stations, and more.
