Walmart has announced all associates will be required to wear masks or some sort of face covering at work during the coronavirus pandemic.
They say the policy includes stores, clubs, distribution and fulfillment centers, as well as corporate offices.
They are also encouraging customers and members to wear face coverings when they shop.
Employees will be required to start wearing a face covering at work.
Walmart said employees can be provided one or they can provide their own as long as it meets certain guidelines. Employees will also be required to pass a health screen and temperature check.
This new policy comes after the store announced they were limiting the amount of people allowed inside. Stores will now allow no more than five customers for each 1,000 square feet at a given time, roughly 20 percent of a store’s capacity.
Walmart also announced a pickup hour for people most at-risk for COVID-19, first responders, and customers with disabilities.
In addition, the company says it’s extending their emergency leave policy through the end of May to ensure employees have support when they need to miss work.
