All Giant Eagle, GetGo, and Market District employees will be required to wear a mask, face covering, or a shield starting Wednesday, the company announced.
The stores are strongly requesting that customers comply with the same mask requirement, starting Friday.
“Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, we have made keeping our Team Members safe and our neighbors healthy our number one priority,” the company wrote in a release. “As we witness increases in positive COVID-19 cases across our communities and the country, we are re-instituting the wearing of face masks, cloth face coverings or face shields for Team Members and guests this week, inclusive of all vaccinated and un-vaccinated individuals.”
Officials say employees will be available to provide a complimentary mask for any shopper who doesn’t have one.
