Transactional Business Safety Recommendations:

  • Enforce 6 feet physical distancing and limit the number of customers in your business based on your size and space and encourage people not to touch things they aren't buying.

  • Continue to offer online, over-the-phone, and appointment shopping and ordering with curbside service as preferable options to in-store interactions.

  • Staff should wear masks to keep themselves and customers safe and set a good example.

  • Provide hand sanitizer stations and encourage customers to use them before & after transactions.

  • Reconfigure credit card process to eliminate the need for staff to handle cards or touch machines.

  • If possible, eliminate the requirement for customer signature on-screen or printed receipt.

  • Wipe down credit card machine or touchpad screen after every customer transaction.

  • Require customers to bag their own purchases.

  • Sanitize surfaces between transactions as much as possible.

  • Staff who have symptoms or immunocompromised household members should stay home.
