Our top priority is ensuring the health and safety of our employees, and we expect to invest approximately $10 billion in 2020 on COVID-related initiatives to keep employees safe and get products to customers.
This includes investments related to COVID-19 safety measures, such as personal protective equipment, enhanced cleaning of our facilities, less efficient process paths that better allow for effective social distancing, higher wages for hourly teams, and developing our own COVID-19 testing capabilities, etc.
We’ve provided 100 million+ face masks to fulfillment centers and operations sites, and an additional 34 million gloves.
We’ve added 2,298 handwashing stations, and we’ve provided 48 million ounces of hand sanitizer, and 93 million sanitizing spray and wipes.
Along with continuous cleaning in our buildings, we’ve added 5,765+ janitorial staffers to our teams. See the above TV commercial that underscores our efforts.
