The statement reads: "There will also be clear signage, directional barriers and floor markings to help you move around our store easily and maintain a two-metre distance from other customers and our colleagues.

"You are allowed to bring your children and other members of your household to our stores, but we ask that you keep this to a minimum to help us maintain social distancing advice.

"We're asking customers to only touch items they intend to purchase and to use cashless payment wherever they can to minimise contact.

"There will be regular announcements on Asda radio to remind customers of their responsibility to apply social distancing rules, and to help you do this we are closing every other self-checkout till."

Meanwhile, Aldi has introduced 'sanitation stations' and has told customers they may be told not to touch trolleys unless they plan on using them.

In a statement to LADbible, Aldi said: "Sanitisation stations are in place at the front of stores so it is easy for customers to disinfect their hands, trolleys and baskets before doing their shop. Our store colleagues may ask that customers only touch trolleys they intend to use."

And Lidl has removed the tongs from its bakery and now has staff pre-bagging items for customers. In a statement on its website, the supermarket said it 'continue to keep an eye on this, and change the way we're doing things if necessary'.

Other supermarkets, including Sainsbury's, are asking that just one adult per household goes into their shops.

Sainsbury's chief executive, Mike Coupe, said: "From today, we are asking everyone to please only send one adult per household to our shops.

"This helps us keep people a safe distance apart and also helps reduce queues to get into stores. Our store teams will be asking groups with more than one adult to choose one adult to shop and will ask other adults to wait. Children of course are welcome if they are not able to stay at home."
