Walmart Méxicoy Centroamérica enables senior packers to get back to work. However, this happens when the epidemiological signal in Mexico has the lowest risk of COVID-19.

The company talks with the National Institute for the Elderly (INAPAM) with the aim of allowing seniors with a complete vaccination plan to return to work as volunteer packers in stores when the epidemiological signal turns green. Announced that it has resumed.

Wal-Mart said in a statement that it was listening to a customer who expressed support for the return of volunteer packers, which had been suspended as a measure to prevent COVID-19 infection.

Similarly, retail chains have recalled that buyers who prefer to keep packing their products themselves are completely free to pack.

Since the SARS-CoV-2 pandemic began in Mexico, several precautions have been taken to protect the most vulnerable people in particular. In it, national supermarkets have withdrawn their packers from the elderly.

Workers have recently launched a protest in Mexico City with the aim of being allowed to return home. Thus, President Andrés Manuel Lopez Obrador was asked about the situation at one of his meetings where he said he would talk to a retail chain to find a solution.
