Walmart, Kroger To Require Customers Wear Masks
WALMART WILL START REQUIRING ALL CUSTOMERS TO WEAR MASKS
(CNN) – Walmart, the world’s largest retailer, is joining the growing list of companies requiring that all customers wear masks.
The requirement will go into effect on Monday.
There’s currently no federal mandate on masks, however, the CDC recommends wearing a face covering in public to reduce the spread of coronavirus.
Walmart says roughly 65% of its 5,000-plus stores, including Sam’s Club locations, are in areas that have government mandates on face coverings.
Starting July 22nd, Kroger stores will also require its customers to wear a mask while shopping.
If people are unable to wear a mask due to medical reasons, Kroger is asking that they consider an alternative option like a face shield or use services like pickup and delivery.
