Dr. Anthony Fauci said he has “no doubt” that Americans who aren’t wearing face masks, especially in large crowds, are increasing the risk of spreading the coronavirus.
Currently, you are required to wear a mask in grocery stores for the safety of others and yourself, but starting this week many local large retail stores also will enforce mask mandates to slow the spread of the coronavirus. Beginning on Monday, Walmart will become the biggest US retailer to require masks, along with CVS Pharmacy and Kroger.
On Saturday, Aug. 1, Target’s mask rule will go into effect in all stores. In a release, the company said, “This builds on the more than 80% of our stores that already require guests to wear face coverings due to local and state regulations.”
