Kroger Reinstates Employee Mask Policy

20 Sep 2021

Once again, Kroger has begun requiring all workers and contractors, regardless of vaccination status, to wear masks while in stores, corporate offices, and other facilities, according to a company spokesperson, reports Grocery Dive.

This is a return to the retailer’s policy that was in place until last May, when it began requiring only unvaccinated employees to wear a mask. Customers are not required to wear masks, but Kroger strongly recommends they do.

The tightened mask requirements are related to the spread of the delta variant of COVID-19 across the U.S. Full Story
