Macy’s Inc. said on Tuesday it will temporarily shorten its store hours on some days at all of its stores for the rest of January, as Covid-19 cases continue to surge across the United States.

It reduced store hours to 11 am to 8 pm from Monday to Thursday, compared with 10 am to 9 pm earlier, but they remain unchanged from Friday to Sunday, the company said in a statement.

Walmart, which has more than 4,700 US locations, temporarily shut almost 60 stores in Covid-19 hotspots in December to sanitise them against the virus.

The United States reported almost a million new coronavirus infections on Monday, with the fast-spreading Omicron variant estimated to account for 95.4 percent of cases as of Jan. 1.
