Beginning on Monday, pharmacy chain CVS will require all customers to wear face covering when entering any of their stores throughout the US.
"With the recent spike in Covid-19 infections, we're joining others in taking the next step and requiring all customers to wear face coverings when entering any of our stores throughout the country effective Monday, July 20," CVS Health Chief Operating Officer Jon Roberts said in a press statement.
"To be clear, we're not asking our store employees to play the role of enforcer. What we are asking is that customers help protect themselves and those around them by listening to the experts and heeding the call to wear a face covering," Roberts added.
CVS joins other major companies that have announced similar moves, including Walmart, Starbucks and Best Buy.
