Target and Walmart Dropping Mask Requirements


A number of major retailers including Walmart and Target will no longer require customers or employees to wear facemasks inside the store if they are fully vaccinated.

The move comes after the CDC released new guidelines last week that fully vaccinated people did not need to wear masks in public.

Most stores will still encourage unvaccinated customers and employees to continue wearing masks. All of the retailers confirmed that they would follow local mandates, which vary by state and county.

Other retailers dropping their mask requirement over the weekend include Publix, Costco, and Trader Joe's.
