Woolworths will install plexiglass guards at the manned checkouts of every store across Australia in the coming weeks.
The first screens have already been introduced at Woolworths Town Hall and Kellyville North.
"Our stores remain open and we will continue to stand by the Australian community during this health crisis," said Claire Peters, general manager of Woolworths Supermarkets.
"As our team members continue to care for the community, we will do everything we can to ensure public health and safety in our stores."
"We know that it is not always easy to maintain social distance at our checkouts, so we started installing plexiglass screens as additional protection for our team members and customers."
Woolworths thanks its customers for their understanding in difficult times.
