Walmart temporarily closed its Normandy Boulevard store Sunday to allow extra time for the store to be cleaned as COVID-19 cases continue to rise in Florida and other areas of the country.

In a statement to WJCT News partner News4Jax, Walmart said the location at 6830 Normandy Boulevard would close at 2 p.m. Sunday as part of the company-initiated program to provide more time for a third-party specialist to sanitize the store and also give associates more time to restock shelves. Walmart said it plans to reopen its Normandy Boulevard location to customers at 6 a.m. Tuesday.

“As you know, several areas across the country have begun seeing a renewed increase in positive COVID-19 cases, mainly among the unvaccinated, and we want to assist health officials working against the pandemic,” the statement reads, in part.

It goes on to say: “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.”
