Planning a Walmart run? Don’t forget your mask!
Starting July 20th, Walmart will implement a new store policy that requires all customers to wear a face-covering when shopping inside any Walmart or Sam’s Club location.
Walmart reports that 65% of its stores are already located in states where the government is requiring face masks to be worn. This new store policy is to keep consistent guidelines across all of its stores.
Currently, Starbucks, Costco, and Apple are implementing the same rules for their customers.
In addition to requiring face masks, Walmart stores will be limited to a single entrance and will have a health ambassador stationed near the entrance to remind those without a mask of the new requirements. The health ambassador will also work with customers who show up at a store without a face covering to try and find a solution.
Sam’s Club locations will also have a health ambassador at their doors and will offer a complimentary mask if the member doesn’t have one.
