COVID-19 - Novel coronavirus - 2019-nCoV, WUHAN coronavirus outbreak

In the midst of the coronavirus pandemic, there is a pretty large debate about wearing a mask and not wearing a mask. We're not here to debate on whether you should wear a mask or not (you should), this is just a guide on helping you know when you NEED to wear a mask when heading to certain retail stores.

Yesterday, the world's largest retail chain Walmart, along with Sam's Club, announced in a press release that beginning Monday, July 20th, all customers, members and employees will be required to wear a mask in their stores. The National Retail Federation (NRF) responded to Walmart's press release saying that they hope "this is a tipping point" in the public health debate to have a national mask mandate. The NRF is pushing that all retail stores across the country implement some sort of mask requirement policy for the safety of customers and employees.

Walmart and Sam's Club is definitely not the first retail store to implement a mask requirement policy. Here is the list of "big box" retail stores you'll need to wear a mask to get into.

Companies That Require Customers To Wear A Mask

We will update this list as more retail stores implement a mask requirement for customers.
