DEDHAM (CBS) — Shaw’s stores and Star Markets are adding plexiglass dividers between cashiers and customers amid the coronavirus pandemic.

A statement from the stores said they’ll be adding the partitions to checkout lanes at 2,000 of their stores over the next two weeks.

“The Plexiglas will serve as a protective barrier between customers and cashiers and provide added reassurance and peace of mind,” the statement said.
