SUPERMARKET giant Morrisons is stepping-up hygiene operations in all its stores – including the site at Worth Way in Keighley.

The company says new equipment and extra cleaning staff are being deployed at every store.

There will also be three-week deep cleans.

The move is part of a programme to further guard against the spread of coronavirus, to protect staff and shoppers.

Morrisons says it has already invested £25 million in measures such as screens, personal protective equipment, floor markings and signage.

In total, 2,240 new cleaning roles will be created – including a Market Street hygiene assistant in all stores.

Also, cleaning stations are being set-up at entrances.

Jayne Wall, the company’s operations director, said: “Hygiene within our stores has become more important than ever due to the impact of Covid-19. We want to make sure our customers feel as safe as possible when doing their grocery shopping with us. So we’ve made this multi-million pound investment to introduce first-class hygiene procedures.”
