STARBUCKS

As the CDC has updated mask guidelines, many major retailers have followed suit. Some are now requiring masks for all employees, while other places are insisting that guests mask up in order to get service.

With concerns over the Delta variant on the rise, it’s time to pull out those masks again, whether you’re sending your kids to school or going out on your next shopping trip. At some retailers, you’ll find employees masked up and at other places you’ll need to wear a mask if you’re in a high-risk or substantial risk area. (As of this week, all 21 NJ counties were considered high or substantial risk and masks are recommended indoors at public places, regardless of vaccination status.)

Here’s a list of the stores and their mask requirements so you can be in the know before you go!

Stores where all employees and customers in high-risk or substantial risk areas need to wear masks inside:

  • Apple Store
  • McDonald’s
Stores that are requiring employees to wear masks, regardless of location:
  • Acme
  • Amazon
  • Home Depot
  • Lowe’s
  • Starbucks
  • Wawa
  • Wegman’s

Stores that are requiring employees in high-risk or substantial risk areas to wear masks:

  • Kohl’s
  • Marshalls
  • T.J. Maxx
  • Target

Masks are only part of the story when it comes to increased safety precautions in the Garden State. Restrictions are popping up at local places, like this NJ restaurant that is requiring proof of vaccination in order to dine indoors.
