As the number of cases of coronavirus start to rise and rumours of a second national lockdown develop, Morrisons have decided to re-introduce strict coronavirus measures at their stores in Lake and Newport.
At the height of the pandemic, the national supermarket enforced a number of restrictions on shoppers including a queuing system and restricted numbers.
Now, as things take a turn for the worse, Morrisons is re-introducing ‘front of store hosts’ to monitor customer numbers, a queuing arch at the Nutmeg clothing aisle and marshalls to help direct customers to checkouts.
Shoppers are reminded that face coverings are still required, unless exempt.
The changes are coming into force today (Saturday) for the foreseeable future.
Other supermarkets across the Isle of Wight are continuing as normal.
