BALTIMORE (WJZ) — Target announced Thursday it will implement additional social distancing measures amid the coronavirus pandemic.

The company said it will actively monitor and, when needed, limit the number of people allowed inside the store based on the store’s specific square footage.


Target said this is another step to encourage social distancing, in addition to floor decals and audio messages already in place at its stores.

Target also said that it will begin providing all team members in stores and distribution centers with disposable face masks and gloves at the beginning of every shift.

These new measures went into effect Saturday.
