As the World health organization updated the entire nation regarding the new variation of Covid-19 “Delta “. Now keeping this in mind, Kroger updated its COVID-19 guidelines this Friday to “encourage” all people, including those who have been vaccinated, to wear masks in its stores.
While, as of now this is just the recommendation and the mask are not a requirement. All unvaccinated Kroger employees are required to wear masks, and the company requires all unvaccinated customers to wear face coverings. But does not refuse entry or provide service to those who do not.
Previously, the vaccinated shoppers have been allowed to shop in Kroger stores without masks since May 19. Kroger spokeswoman Crystal Howard said the highly contagious delta variant of COVID-19 and updated CDC recommendations prompted the company to change its guidance.
