Supermarket lockdown rules: Tesco, Sainsbury’s, Aldi and Lidl share latest guidance
SUPERMARKETS have constantly updated shopping rules to keep customers safe during the coronavirus pandemic. With lockdown restrictions increasing in the UK, there are some rules that should be followed when visiting supermarkets.
Tesco outline their latest shopping measures ahead of lockdown
The supermarket giant has encouraged customers to shop in stores if possible to help free up delivery slots for the vulnerable.
When visiting branches, safety measures have been introduced to keep customers and colleagues safe.
This includes a traffic light system which will monitor the flow of customers in and out.
The Tesco website states: “We have installed a simple ’traffic light’ system in some of our larger stores to help us manage the flow in and out.

Supermarket lockdown rules: Social distancing rules have been put into place
“Once in store, please keep to the social distancing markings. If there’s a queue outside and it’s raining, we’ll be handing out sanitised umbrellas in our larger stores.”
Hand sanitiser and cleaning stations are also available in stores and Britons are urged to keep a safe distance while shopping.
During the pandemic, Sainsbury’s has asked shoppers to avoid busy times, keep two trolleys apart and pay with card or mobile where possible.
Clear floor markings are also in place to ensure Britons keep a safe distance and shoppers are asked to visit stores alone.
“We are asking everyone to only send one adult per household to our shops where possible,” its website stated.
“This helps us keep people a safe distance apart and also helps to reduce queues to get into stores. Our store teams will be asking groups with more than one adult to choose one adult to shop and will ask other adults to wait. Children are welcome if they are not able to stay at home.”
The discount supermarket chain has also rolled out a traffic light system to manage the flow of customers.

When arriving at Aldi stores, shoppers will be informed whether they can enter or not based on how many people are already inside.
Customers are also encouraged to visit branches at the quietest times, which Aldi revealed is between 7pm and 10pm.
The retailer is continuing to enforce social distancing and hygiene measures.
A statement explained: “We have introduced trolley and basket cleaning stations across all our stores.
“We have placed markers on the floors of our checkouts to ensure a safe distance between customers. We are installing perspex screens around all of our till points to protect colleagues and customers.”
