The safety measures include installing Plexiglas shields on many front-end registers and giving associates protective face masks where the Plexiglas can’t be installed.

Pharmacy employees and those at the customer service desk will be given protective face shields.

The installation process will take place within weeks.

Wegmans also announced Thursday that it will be ramping up similar safety measures at its checkout lines.
