BOCA RUDETON™: Even During COVID, Publix Is Dog Walking Central

Face Shield For Woman, Long Leash For Dog Leaves Reader Asking Why This Is Permissible In Publix Polo Shoppes Boca Raton

Publix is trying to keep stores sanitized, which is why a reader asks why this dog was permitted in the Publix Polo Shoppes in Boca Raton.

BOCA RATON, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — A BocaNewsNow.com reader was appalled to see this woman letting her dog roam on a long leash in the Publix at Polo Shoppes (Champion Blvd.) in Boca Raton as the chain tries to keep stores sanitized during the COVID-19 pandemic.

While the woman is wearing a face shield — you can zoom in to see it — the reader found it upsetting that Publix is permitting dogs in the store during COVID-19 — a violation of the company’s own policies.

“Oblivious woman walking her dog on extended leash while grocery shopping inside Publix Polo Shoppes around 4:15 p.m. Wednesday. Dog was licking items on shelves and making it hard to walk by in aisles without dog touching patrons.”
