Customers went through checkout lanes and workers were busy stocking and cleaning April 3, 2020, at the Fort McCoy Commissary at Fort McCoy, Wis.

Since the installation’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic began in March 2020, the Fort McCoy Commissary staff has continued to take steps to protect their customers and follow recommended pandemic-response guidelines.

The store has maintained regular hours through the response and have continued to take extra measures to maintain safety, according to Commissary Officer Cindy Perry.

Some measures include having all shopping carts sanitized before and after each customer's use. The store also increased cleaning and sanitizing of equipment and surfaces a minimum six times a day and when possible after each patron.

The store also started a "no touching ID" policy where staff asks patrons to scan their ID or allow staff members to use a hand scanner after verifying the ID to limit close contact concerns.
