Home Depot adjusts store hours

Home Depot is temporarily adjusting store hours in response to Covid-19. Beginning Thursday, March 19, stores will now close daily at 6 p. m., while opening hours will remain unchanged. Homeowners and businesses depend on the stores for urgent needs, the company says. The adjusted hours will give stores the ability to staff appropriately and provide additional time to restock shelves and perform cleaning.

Home Depot is also expanding its paid time off policy to address the needs of hourly associates. Starting this week, all hourly full-time associates will receive an additional 80 hours of paid sick or personal time, and part-time hourly associates will receive an additional 40 hours of paid sick or personal time. If associates are diagnosed with Covid-19 or advised by health or government officials to self-quarantine due to direct Covid-19 exposure, they will continue to be paid during that time, the retail giant announces.
