NEW: You May Have to Wait in Line to Get Groceries as Stores Limit Entry to Fewer Customers


JASPER - Grocery stores around the area, like Walmart, are now putting limits on the number of shoppers allowed in the store at once.

Walmart, Meijer, and Target say they hope this will slow the spread of the coronavirus with more social distancing.

Front doors are now roped off and require people to wait outside in line until ushered in.

Walmart's limit is five shoppers for every 1,000 square feet.

With people out for just essentials, lines are expected to be short and move quickly.
