In response to the outbreak of COVID-19 (coronavirus), Whole Foods Market looks to continue to serve their customers. They have adjusted their hours to expand delivery times, to provide enhanced cleanliness and sanitation protocols, and to give at-risk populations time to shop if necessary. They look to remain an option as an essential business for people during the pandemic, and will provide delivery via no-contact service.
