Almost no lines at Roanoke Walmarts, despite new customer limits

ROANOKE, Va. (WDBJ7)-- Walmart is now limiting the number of customers allowed in its stores. This is to maintain social distancing and public health during the coronavirus pandemic.

Stores are allowing no more than five customers for each 1,000 square feet at a time. That's around 20 percent of a store's capacity.

WDBJ7 stopped by a few Roanoke area Walmarts around 11 a.m. Saturday, but we didn't see anyone waiting in lines.

This week, Walmart will only allow one-way movement through each aisle inside, using floor markers.
