US – Aldi has jumped on the bandwagon and joined stores that have already made mandates for mask use in stores like Walmart, Target, and Kroger.
In a press release Aldi says that mandatory mask wearing will start July 27 in all Aldi stores nationwide.
“We continue to monitor safety protocols from the CDC as well as state and local health officials. Most recently, the CDC stated that cloth face coverings are a critical tool in the fight against COVID-19 and could reduce the spread of the virus.
Our new face covering policy is an enhanced safety measure intended to help limit the spread of COVID-19. All ALDI employees will continue to wear face coverings, as they have for months.
We encourage any customer that is unable or unwilling to wear a face covering, to visit shop.aldi.us for grocery delivery – and even Curbside Grocery Pickup in many locations.”
