According to the statements, Kroger is still asking to continue requiring customers to wear masks in stores, despite CDC’s new guidelines. Now, if you are going to Kroger, don’t forget to bring your mask.
While, on Thursday, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention relaxed guidelines for wearing indoor masks for people who have been fully vaccinated. Allowing them to stop wearing masks outdoors in crowds and indoors in most situations.
The new guidelines still call for the wearing of masks in crowded enclosed spaces like buses, planes, hospitals, prisons and homeless shelters, but it will help pave the way for the reopening of workplaces, schools and other places – even removing the need for masks or social distancing from them. Who have been fully vaccinated?
Here is the official statement: “We’ve all longed for this moment – when we can get back to some sense of normality,” said Dr. Rochelle Wallinski, director of the CDC. The announcement comes as the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the Biden administration have faced pressure to ease restrictions on people who have been fully vaccinated. People who have exceeded two weeks of their last required COVID-19 vaccine dose in part to highlight the benefits of getting the shot. The country’s massive vaccination campaign has paid off. While the cases in the United States have recorded their lowest rate since September, deaths are at their lowest since last April, and the rate of test-positive is at its lowest point since the start of the epidemic.

In this regard, shortly after the announcement on Thursday, many questioned whether their local stores would loosen mask restrictions, especially after Ohio Gov. Mike DeWine announced that Ohio would lift all health orders for COVID-19, effective June 2. Kroger released a statement Thursday saying at this time, “The Kroger family of companies continues to require everyone in our stores to wear masks.”
“We appreciate the governor’s deliberate approach to diverging and concealing restrictions that acknowledge companies’ need for continued flexibility to implement safety protocols,” Kroger said in her statement. WLWT will update Kroger’s status regarding its mask policy in the coming months as Kroger officials work with federal and state guidance.
