Beginning tomorrow, (Saturday) the Minneapolis-based retailer will limit how many shoppers can be in a store at one time.

Occupancy limits will vary based on the size of the store.

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

The retailer also announced Thursday it will soon provide staff in stores and distribution centers with disposable face masks and gloves at the beginning of every shift, which employees will be encouraged to wear while working.

Target reduced hours starting March 18 and all stores close by 9 p.m. local time.

It also has dedicated a shopping hour to vulnerable guests on Tuesday and Wednesday mornings.
