COOKEVILLE – To mask or not to mask, that is the question. In this new world dominated by COVID-19 concerns, some retailers are requiring masks be worn in their establishments. Dollar Tree, for example, mandated masks last week and quietly reversed their position to just suggesting them this week. The UCBJ compiled a list to help guide you plan your shopping trip.
These businesses now require masks:
T J Maxx / HomeGoods
Mask Mandates starting soon, include:
Aldi: Starts Monday July 27
CVS: Starts Monday, July 20
GameStop: Starts Monday, July 27
Kohls: Starts Monday, July 20
Kroger: Starts Wednesday, July 22
Lowes: Starts Monday, July 20
Publix: Starts Tuesday, July 21
Sam’s Club: Starts Monday, July 20
Walgreens: Starts Monday, July 20
Walmart: Starts Monday, July 20
This list will be updated as more retailers announce mandates.
