Walmart is reinstituting store practices on customer limits over rising cases of COVID-19.

The shopping giant says it's resuming the counting of customers as they enter and exit stores.

The latest announcement comes as the number of Coronavirus cases in the U.S. has jumped over the past several weeks.

In April, Walmart operated stores at roughly 20% capacity or five customers per 1,000 square feet.

Walmart eventually stopped physically counting customers.

Now the stores will reignite the practice for social distance safety.

Other major chains have enacted different rules to combat the virus, including placing purchase limits on items such as hand sanitizer and toilet paper.
