According to a report on BusinessInsider.com, Walmart started limiting the number of customers allowed in its stores this past weekend.

The measures, which will limit stores to five customers per 1,000 square feet of shopping space, will be used to reinforce safe social distancing practices. 

These restrictions will keep the stores at roughly 20 percent of their normal operating capacity.
