Kroger Co. announced Wednesday beginning next week, all customers wil be required to wear face masks.  The mandatory mandate begins July 22nd.

“With the increase in #COVID19 cases across the country, we are committed to doing our part to help reduce the spread of the virus,” Kroger wrote in a tweet.

Mask mandates will be required for anyone entering a U.S. store, with the exception of small children.  Those who are unable to wear face masks for medical reasons are asked to wear face shields or facial coverings.

The announcement came in a windfall of other retailers across the country announcing similar measures this past week, including Walmart, Kohls, Starbucks and Best Buy.
