By West Kentucky Star Staff
BENTONVILLE, AR - Walmart has announced the company will begin taking employees' temperatures in response to the COVID-19 outbreak.

Store officials said in a press release they will be checking the temperatures of employees as they report to work in stores, clubs and facilities, as well as asking them some basic questions. The company says it is in the process of sending infrared thermometers to all locations, which could take up to three weeks.

The company says it will also make masks and gloves available for employees who want to wear them.

Stores already made several changes in March, including closing overnight for cleaning, installing sneeze guards at checkouts and pharmacies, using wipes and sprayers for carts, and promoting social distancing.
