Supermarket Flu Precautions

In the category of an abundance of caution, Food Lion supermarkets have announced steps they are taking to prevent the spread of flu infections.

Truckloads of food will be stopped at distribution centers, where the drivers will be asked if their shipment came from any affected areas. If the answer is yes, the driver will be allowed to open the rear doors of the truck, but then will be ordered back to cab while the truck is unloaded.

The driver will not be allowed to approach any distribution employees, and will be orderd to leave the distribution area immediately. “These precautions have been put in place to ensure that we protect our customers and associates from potential risk,” the company says.
