Starting Monday, all Walmart and Sam’s Club stores will require shoppers to wear face masks. Company leaders say that nearly 2/3 of its stores across the country are already covered by masking requirements by local governments. For consistency, the retail giant is making the move to include all of its stores.
In addition to posting clear signage at the front of the stores, Walmart has created the role of Health Ambassador and will station them near the stores entrance to remind shoppers about the new requirements. Between now and Monday, Walmart will work to inform customers and members of the changes, post signage and train associates on the new protocols.
