Amazon founder and CEO Jeff Bezos made a surprise visit to an Amazon fulfillment center and a Whole Foods Market amid ongoing efforts by the company to ensure its workers’ safety amid the COVID-19 crisis.

The online giant tweeted a video of Bezos putting on a face mask and getting his temperature checked as he enters the fulfillment center where he talks with workers.  He also is shown at a Whole Foods store where he thanked employees throughout the store. Amazon did not identify the locations of the fulfillment center or store.

The company recently announced a number of new safety measures to protect its employees, including taking employees’ temperatures when they report to work and giving them face masks to wear on the job.
