Retail is a big industry set to reopen during phase one in Kentucky. Stores can once again open their doors to customers on Wednesday, May 20.
Retail businesses that are considered non-essential include entertainment, sporting goods, clothing, shoe, jewelry and furniture stores, florists, bookstores and auto dealers.
Similar to restaurants, retail businesses can only operate at 33% capacity. Shoppers and employees are expected to maintain six feet of distance. In places where six feet of distance isn’t possible, like cash registers, stores are encouraged to create barriers between employees and customers.
Stores are allowed to open fitting rooms as long as the rooms are cleaned after each use, and clothes are sanitized before they go back out on the floor. If shoppers need to sign a receipt, the pen must be sanitized.
Employees must wear masks, wash their hands frequently, and sanitize areas or items that have been touched.
