With coronavirus numbers increasing in Arizona Walmart and Sam's Club will begin requiring their customers across the United States to wear face masks when coming into the stores.
In a blog post released Wednesday, the company said that it will begin requiring shoppers to wear facial coverings before entering the store beginning Monday, July 20, in an effort to make customers and employees safer and to bring more consistency to how its stores operate. They said that 65 percent of its 5,000+ stores and clubs are located in areas where there is some form of government mandate about face coverings.
"While we're certainly not the first business to require face coverings, we know this is a simple step everyone can take for their safety and the safety of others in our facilities," they wrote in the post.
