Description
Food Basics, Lindsay, had plenty of instructional signage letting shoppers know about limited store access and how to practice safe social distancing from other shoppers. Arrows and signs were placed on floors to guide shoppers up and down aisles in designated directions to allow for safer distancing, though this was not often followed by shoppers.

Effective March 20, 2020, shopping between the hours of 7:00 AM and 8:00 AM was restricted to seniors and vulnerable populations only. This was part of a social media movement calling for seniors-only shopping times to allow for greater safety for the most vulnerable to suffering greater impacts from COVID-19.

Effective March 26, 2020, Food Basics temporarily removed all in-store paper flyer copies and recommended shoppers to use their website or download the Food Basics app to view the flyer.

Effective March 30, 2020, Food Basics limited shopping to one person per family in the store. This was to reduce instances of family shopping as an outing, free up space in their store to allow for more single shoppers in the store at once, and maintain safe social distancing for staff and shoppers.

Like many businesses, the use of cash for payment was still accepted, but contact-free payment methods (debit or credit) were the preferred. Shoppers were to place groceries on the conveyor belt and proceed to the other end of the checkout counter to maintain social distancing. They only approached to pay when the cashier asked them to do so.
