Should precautions be taken?
Shoppers are required to continue to wear masks and engage in social distancing as the coronavirus outbreak pandemic continues.
People are urged to go to the store with as few others as possible.
"We have seen that generally, customers have adopted new behaviors and take serious their personal responsibility to wear masks, practice social distancing and use our expanded hours to better spread traffic throughout the day, enabling us to provide them new options, like opening a second entrance and removing barriers at the front of our stores," reads the Walmart website.
"For the foreseeable future, we will continue with most of the measures currently in place - such as requiring masks, enhanced cleaning routines, including spraying carts after use, plastic shields at our registers and increasing the number of health ambassadors working at entrances."
There are about 5,000 Walmarts in the US, and shoppers should check their local stores for Covid-19 guidelines.
