Next week, Walmart will "institute one-way movement through our aisles" in a number of stores, Smith said, with direction from store staff and floor markers "to help more customers avoid coming into close contact with others as they shop."
While most Walmart stores have two entrances, stores will use a single-entry, which in most cases will be at the grocery entrance, Dacona Smith, executive vice president and chief operating officer, Walmart U.S., wrote in a blog post.
Shoppers will be directed to the entrance "where they will be admitted one-by-one and counted," Smith said, noting store staff and signage "will remind customers of the importance of social distancing while they’re waiting to enter a store."
"Once a store reaches its capacity, customers will be admitted inside on a '1-out-1-in' basis," Smith said.
The biggest issue seems to be that people aren't heeding advice about distance. The last time I was at the store a few days ago, they were milling about and seem (to me) to be adopting a "no, you move out of MY way" attitude. I also observed a group of employees A. Much closer than 6 feet and (more importantly) B. Totally blocking an entire aisle.
as someone who has nearly died from a coronavirus - had I not been in the cardiologists office when my heart stopped, I wouldn't be writing this.

When the talk turns to how this is rather communistic in how we're being forced to do these things, remember the people did it to themselves by not using the common sense that comes with being a human being.
