Mar 27 2020, 7:50 am

At 636 locations across Canada, 7-Eleven is in the process of installing plexiglass sneeze guards at its front sales counters to reduce the spread of COVID-19.

Each store is set to receive two Canadian-made transparent plastic barriers, and they will be installed no later than March 31.

Credit card keypads will be located on the customer-facing side of the plexiglass sneeze guards, for easiest customer access.

“Our stores recognize the need to provide Canadians with access to essential products during this time, however, we continue to take precautionary measures to keep our employees and customers safe,” said 7-Eleven Canada’s Vice President and General Manager Norman Hower, in a release.

“We continue to monitor the evolving situation daily to prioritize the health of Canadians alongside Canada Health recommendations.”

The company has also enhanced its standards and procedures for hygiene, hand-washing, sanitation and food handling, increased the frequency of cleaning high-touch surfaces, and placed floor markers in stores to enable customers to practice social distancing.

For those who are unable to or prefer not to leave their homes, 7-Eleven is offering delivery through Uber Eats and Foodora.
