Last month, the CDC announced the loosening of its mask guidance, saying people who are fully vaccinated against the coronavirus don’t need to wear a mask indoors unless local laws and regulations demanded it. It’s led to increasing confusion — and more difficult retail working environment.
Since the announcement, retailers have been left to their own devices to come up with new mask guidelines for employees and customers. Now, most retailers — including Walmart, Target, Trader Joe’s and Costco — have said that vaccinated customers no longer have to wear masks in stores, unless local regulations still require it. But, they’re not requiring customers to provide proof of vaccination.
