USA Today reports, "Occupancy limits will vary by store and based on a specific location's square footage "to enhance the average space per person and reduce the possibility of congestion," Target said.

If a store needs to limit shoppers, there will be a "designated waiting area outside with social distancing markers."

The store will also provide gloves and other protective gear for their employees.
