HUNTSVILLE, Ala. (WAFF) - One of Huntsville’s Walmart locations will be closed until Thursday.

In a Tuesday statement, Walmart announced the temporary closure of its Huntsville Supercenter location at 3031 Memorial Parkway SW beginning at 2 p.m.

As part of a company-initiated program, a third party cleaning crew will thoroughly clean and sanitize the building. The location will remain closed until December 17 at 7 a.m.

Walmart released the following statement about the temporary closure:

“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 Thursday, 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.”
