Tesco makes major changes which could end queue to get in

Tesco has made major changes to its social distancing rules which should mean an end to queues outside the shop.

The Government has reduced the advice on social distancing from two metres to one metre so long as other measures are used – such as screens, face coverings and hand washing.

In line with the new guidance Tesco has scrapped its one way systems dictating which direction you have to walk up and down the aisles.

And it is allowing more people in stores at any one time, meaning the queues outside should be greatly reduced or disappear altogether.

It will still be asking customers to try to keep two metres apart.

At the same time it is changing restrictions on what you can buy.

Tesco told The Sun it is now easing some of its shopping restrictions as more shoppers return to the high street following the easing of lockdown.

The supermarket – which has around 3,700 UK stores – said it will still monitor how many customers visit, but some branches will now increase their entry limits.

This, it said, would be at the manager’s discretion and subject to each store’s size.

Tesco also confirmed its one-way systems have been removed, although the supermarket will still ask customers to stay two metres apart.

Stores will still have floor markings in place to remind shoppers to social distance.

The government has recently slashed the social distancing rule, so that people must now stand at least one metre apart – although some businesses are still sticking to two metres.

In addition, Tesco has also increased its 80-item limit to 95 items as stock levels return to normal.

The grocer still has a three-per-person limit on face coverings, antibacterial handwash, antibacterial wipes, flour, and eggs.

Elderly and vulnerable shoppers still also get priority access on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays between 9am until 10am.
