CVS becomes latest retailer to institute face covering policy at all locations




CVS has become the latest retailer to institute a face covering policy at its stores nationwide.

The requirement will go into effect on Monday, July 20.

“Since the pandemic began, we’ve done everything we can to keep people safe and healthy. This includes requiring that store employees wear face coverings and encouraging our customers to do so as well. In any community with state or local laws mandating the use of face coverings, we’ve made that very clear through signage and other reminders,” CVS Chief Operating Officer Jon Roberts said in a statement.

“With the recent spike in COVID-19 infections, we’re joining others in taking the next step and requiring all customers to wear face coverings when entering any of our stores throughout the country effective Monday, July 20,” Roberts continued.

“To be clear, we’re not asking our store employees to play the role of enforcer. What we are asking is that customers help protect themselves and those around them by listening to the experts and heeding the call to wear a face covering.”

On Wednesday, Walmart and Kroger announced that their stores throughout the country will begin to require customers to wear face masks.
