BENTONVILLE, AR (KLFY) Walmart stores are planning to update their response to the coronavirus pandemic by creating one-way aisles to encourage social distancing.

The single direction aisles are designed to increase social distancing, Walmart announced.

“One-way aisles are designed to increase social distancing and give customers more space on each aisle.”

The company says it is now implementing the change and installing floor decals in all stores by the beginning of May.

New floor decals will be put in place to help indicate the correct traffic flow, Walmart announced.

Green ‘shop this way’ decals will indicate if you are traveling in the right direction. Red, ‘do not shop this way’ decals indicate if you are traveling in the wrong direction and must turn around.

Correction: Originally this story said the new measures start beginning Thursday. It should have read the beginning of May.
