Walmart is taking new precautions in the midst of COVID-19.

According to KXXV, Walmart is in the process of sending digital thermometers to all of their store locations to begin taking temperatures of their employees in hopes of preventing the spread of the coronavirus.

Before each shift employees will be required to take and log their temperatures. Equipment is set to arrive anytime within a week or two.

Walmart also plans to supply gloves and mask to employees who want them while supplies last.

The store is encouraging employees and customers to stay six feet away from one another and to wash their hands frequently with soap for 20 seconds.
