Electrical Question from David about GFCI Wiring

Question: The kitchen counter (3 outlets) does not have GFCI protection at this time. I just determined that each of the outlets has 2 circuits, one to the top outlets and the other to the bottom outlets.


Electrical Question from David about GFCI Wiring

Received from David a Handyman in Jenison, Michigan

Question: The kitchen counter (3 outlets) does not have GFCI protection at this time. I just determined that each of the outlets has 2 circuits, one to the top outlets and the other to the bottom outlets. A standard GFCI outlet can not be installed because of the 2 circuits to each receptacle outlet. What should I do to get GFCI protection at these outlets?

Thank you for your help…..
