Wegmans and Tops installing plexiglass shields at the register

Mar 26, 2020

Both Wegmans and Tops have added some additional safety measures at their stores, or are in the process of doing that now.

Wegmans and Tops are both putting plexiglass shields on at front end registers and pharmacy counters because of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Wegmans says its shields were first tested at the Chili store and have now been rolled out the other 100  locations.

Tops says that it will also be putting up the shields at all of its 162 stores. Both Tops and Wegmans have established a system at the registers that allows for more social distancing between customers, and the supermarket chains have also increased sanitation procedures in the stores.
