Dallas Walmart Temporarily Closing Until January 1 Amid Surging Omicronn Coronavirus Cases

A Dallas Walmart is closing temporarily for cleaning until after the New Year as new COVID-19 cases surge thanks to omicron.

The Walmart Neighborhood Market at 2305 N US-75 Central Expressway in Dallas will close at 2 p.m. today as part of a company-initiated program to allow third party cleaning crews time to thoroughly sanitize the building. The store will remain closed on New Year’s Eve but is scheduled to reopen at 6 a.m. on Jan. 1.

Walmart said they will continue to follow CDC guidance on masking and will require unvaccinated workers to wear them at all times. Walmart will also keep conducting routine health checks to make sure their employees are safe and healthy.

Walmart is also encouraging its workers to get vaccinated. Workers can get their vaccines at the store they work at or receive up to two hours of paid leave to get the jab at another location.
