Additionally, the first hour of shopping every Wednesday will be reserved for those most vulnerable to the coronavirus: the elderly and those with underlying health conditions.

Finally, Target said it would prioritize essential products including food and medicine.

These changes begin Wednesday and will remain in effect indefinitely.
