Following a reversal of mask-wearing guidelines established by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), several U.S. retailers and food chains have announced they are reinstating their mask policies.

On July 27, the CDC updated its recommendations for wearing a mask, stating that everyone should wear masks indoors, regardless of vaccination status, to help maximize protection against the Delta variant.

Here are the stores that updated their own mask policies after the latest CDC guidelines:

  • Home deposit – All employees, regardless of their vaccination status, are required to wear masks indoors.
  • Kroger– All employees and customers are strongly encouraged to wear a mask in stores and facilities
  • Lowe’s – All employees, regardless of their vaccination status, are required to wear masks indoors.

  • Starbucks – All employees, regardless of their vaccination status, are required to wear masks indoors. Where required by local law or regulation, Starbucks will require customers to wear face masks indoors.

  • Walmart – In counties at significant or high risk of transmission and where there are state or local mask mandates, all employees, regardless of their immunization status, will be required to wear masks inside its facilities, including stores , Sam’s Club locations and distribution and distribution centers.
