Walmart Changes Mask Wearing Policy

Walmart is once again requiring employees wear masks inside.

The new policy is effective immediately in places with substantial or high transmission of COVID-19.

Masks will still be optional for customers.

Walmart ditched its mask mandate in May

But re-evaluated the policy after the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention updated its guidance this week because of surging COVID-19 cases.

The CDC now recommends fully vaccinated people resume wearing masks indoors in areas with high transmission of COVID-19 and its Delta Variant.

That includes nearly two thirds of all US counties.

Other large retailers like Target, Trader Joe’s, and Costco are also re-evaluating their masks policies.
