ST. LOUIS (KMOX) - Starting Monday Dierbergs, has joined Schnucks in limiting the number of customers inside its stores to just one per household. 

All 23 Dierbergs Markets locations in Missouri and its two Illinois locations will begin limiting the number of customers allowed inside at any given time. Schnucks started the same policy at its stores on Saturday. 

Also at Dierbergs, once a store has reached capacity, waiting lines will begin forming at clearly designated entrances outside of the store. 

Starting Monday in Missouri, any essential retail store that's less than 10,000 square feet can have 25% of its allowed occupancy inside. Any store that is 10,000 square feet or more can have 10% of its allowed occupancy. 

To help increase the practice of safe social distancing, starting today, Schnucks began limiting the number of customers in our stores to one shopper per household when possible. Thank you for understanding. #WeAreAllInThisTogetherpic.twitter.com/prdKb0GSZN

Missouri reported 10 more deaths from COVID-19 Sunday, bringing the death toll to 34. 

The increases come as Missouri residents prepare to live under a statewide stay-at-home order, which requires them to stay home except for essential needs, such as buying groceries. The order also requires public schools to stay closed, bans visits to nursing homes, and limits the number of customers allowed in grocery stores and other essential businesses.
