Covid 19

Important information - updated September 2021

Please follow official guidelines for your local area regarding face coverings when shopping in Sainsbury's stores. From Monday 19th July, when wearing a face covering becomes a personal choice in England, they encourage you to continue to wear a face covering, if you can.

Where government restrictions apply they have limited the number of people in their stores and at their ATMs at any one time. They have also put queuing systems in place outside stores and ask you to queue at a safe distance of two metres apart.

Please try to keep a safe distance from other customers and from their colleagues when you are doing your shop. They have placed clear markings on shop floors to help you know what a safe distance is.

They are asking everyone to only send one adult per household to their shops where possible. This helps us keep people a safe distance apart and also helps to reduce queues to get into stores. Their store teams will be asking groups with more than one adult to choose one adult to shop and will ask over adults to wait. Children are welcome if they are not able to stay at home.

Sainsbury’sstores now offering to elderly and vulnerable customers, NHS staff and care workers prioritised access to all stores at any time, but it's neccessary to show a valid NHS or care worker pass at the door. Customers in England who are at a higher risk of coronavirus or are vulnerable can refer themselves (or a family member) for help with food and essential items from the NHS Volunteer Responders programme by calling 0808 196 3646. Sainsbury’s stores are continuing to offer priority access to home delivery slots for the most vulnerable customers.
