Shoprite has put in place social distancing measures and priority shopping hours ahead of the Island’s three-week lockdown.

The retail chain has taken to social media to reassure residents the safety of customers and staff is its top priority.

Among the guidelines coming in are allowing only one person per household in store, face masks are compulsory, two metre social distancing being marked out and asking people to pay with contactless where possible.

Visitors will also be able to use sanitising stations at the front of each store before entering.

The organisation adds its keeping dedicated shopping hours at stores in Douglas, Onchan, Port Erin, Castletown, Derby Road in Peel and on Bowring Road in Ramsey.

8am to 9am on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays will be dedicated shopping time for senior citizens and vulnerable customers.

Meanwhile, 8am to 9am on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays will be priority time for NHS, emergency and key workers.

Staff at the outlets have been provided with masks, sanitiser, protective screens at checkouts and enhanced deep cleaning procedures are being put in place.
