Walmart Supercenter in Royse City to temporarily close for COVID cleaning

ROYSE CITY, TX – Jan. 4, 2020 – Walmart Royse City Supercenter, located at 494 W. Interstate 30, will temporarily close its doors at 2 p.m. today, Monday, Jan. 4, as part of a company-initiated program to allow third party cleaning crews time to thoroughly clean and sanitize the building. The location will remain closed through Tuesday, Jan. 5, providing associates time to restock shelves and prep the store to reopen at 7 a.m. Wednesday, Jan. 6.

Walmart’s place within the community is considered essential, providing customers with food, medicine and other items needed during this time. You can find details on several initiatives Walmart has enacted to help keep associates and customers safe here at their COVID-19 response site.

Walmart released this official statement earlier to Blue Ribbon News:

“Everything we’re doing is for the well-being of our associates and customers, and in consideration of guidance by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and health experts. When the store reopens Wednesday, we will continue conducting associate health screens and temperature checks, and all associates will be provided with facemasks and gloves. 

“These protocols are in addition to the extensive measures we’ve put in place during the pandemic to help protect our associates and customers, including installing sneeze guards at registers, temperature checks and mandatory mask-wearing for associates, placing social distancing signage and enacting emergency leave policy for associates who are unable or uncomfortable coming to work. Additionally, through the help of our health ambassadors, we will continue requiring customers to wear protective facial coverings while inside the building. 

“We will continue working closely with elected and local health officials, adjusting how we serve the community while also keeping the health and safety of our customers and associates in mind.”
