After issuing dedicated senior hours back in March because of the coronavirus pandemic, Walmart (WMT) has now extended these special hours into June.

The retail giant confirmed the news to USA Today, saying, the senior and vulnerable shopper hours would continue until further notice.

Walmart offers the first hour of every Tuesday for customers aged 60 and older and those that are high-risk for contracting COVID-19. In addition, the company has set aside the hours of 7 a.m. to 8 a.m. daily for pickup of online orders for high-risk shoppers, seniors, and first responders at select pickup stores.

During the dedicated senior shopping hours, the pharmacy and vision center is open. The special senior hours are effective at all Walmart stores and Neighborhood Markets locations.

Walmart has reduced its store hours to 7 a.m. to 8:30 p.m. during the coronavirus pandemic. The company has not announced any changes to its hours, only telling the news outlet, "As for operating hours, right now our priority is making additional services available (auto care center, vision center, etc.) as it is safe to do so. After that we’ll decide the best approach to expanding hours."

Shares of Walmart stock were down 0.35% as of 2:23 p.m. EDT on Monday.
