Some of measures announced by Under Armour during the initial phases of the reopening include: Training all teammates on health and safety procedures prior to reopening; Reducing store hours to allow time for new cleaning protocol; Limiting store occupancy; Requiring teammates and customers to wear masks in the store; Adding hand sanitizing stations throughout the store; Holding back returned products for 72 hours before returning to the floor;     Temporarily closing all fitting rooms; Sanitizing payment point of contact in between each use; Labeling spaces to ensure adherence with social distancing guidelines at checkout and other high traffic areas and Communicating "House Rules" via posters throughout the store and announcements over the sound system.

Reopening decisions and protocols in countries outside of North America are being made based on local guidance and in consultation with government and public health officials in those markets.
