Publix announces masks mandatory for customers starting Tuesday

Published on

Shoppers at all 1,250 Publix grocery stores will be required to wear face coverings inside its stores.

Publix announced the rule Thursday, the day after Walmart and Sam’s Club announced a similar mandate at more than 5,000 stores. Walmart’s rule will take effect Monday.

The requirement will be posted at store entrances, and there will be in-store announcements about it, according to a news release. Young children and people with medical conditions who can’t wear masks will be exempt from the policy.

The grocery store chain recommends those who can’t wear face coverings to consider using delivery or curbside pickup options.

“With the number of coronavirus cases continuing to grow and current CDC guidance indicating face coverings can help slow the spread of COVID-19, we believe requiring face coverings in our stores is another way we can do our part to help protect our communities,” spokeswoman Maria Brous said in the news release.
