Las Vegas, NV (KXNT) - The Walmart Super Center located near McCarran Airport is closed for what the company calls “routine COVID-19 sanitation cleaning.”

The store shut down Sunday at 2 and is expected to reopen tuesday morning at 7. 

A news release from the company reads, 

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 Tuesday, 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.

The company temporarily closed its Eastern and Serene location just before Christmas for similar reasons.
