Walmart And Sam’s Club to Require Mask In Stores Nationwide

If you shop at Walmart and Sam’s Club, be prepared to shop with a mask.

As many States are now requiring mask to be worn in public, Walmart and Sam’s Club stores will start requiring masks to be worn in all of their stores nationwide, starting Monday, July 20th, the company announced.

According to the company’s website, “From the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, our focus and priority has been and continues to be on the health and safety of our associates, members and customers.

As the number of confirmed cases has spiked in communities across the country recently, so too have the number and types of face covering mandates being implemented. Currently about 65 percent of our more than 5,000 stores and clubs are located in areas where there is some form of government mandate on face coverings. To help bring consistency across stores and clubs, we will require all shoppers to wear a face covering starting Monday, July 20. This will give us time to inform customers and members of the changes, post signage and train associates on the new protocols.”
