T&T Supermarket was one of the first stores to implement temperature checks in Richmond in April.

However, they suspended the practice because of inaccurate high readings from the hot summer weather in June.

Tina Lee, CEO of T&T Supermarket, said in a notice that they will be resuming temperature checks as the weather has cooled down compared to the last couple months.

While temperature checks are voluntary at T&T, shoppers are still required to wear face coverings before entering the store. 

They will provide face masks for a charitable donation of $1 for patrons who do not have any.

T&T Supermarket, said Lee, has been “steadily preparing for a second wave.”

“There is so much to do: securing the fall season food supply chain, expanding our online services, recognizing the efforts of our team and continuing to ensure their safety at work. We are ready.” 

She added that T&T has expanded their face mask donation program to include K-12 schools and have donated over 520,000 face masks as “back up supplies” to protect teachers and children.
