Amazon Whole Foods Market Stores in Canada to require face masks



from https://www.freshdaily.ca/food/2020/05/ ... ace-masks/
Whole Foods is the latest to join supermarkets like Longo's and some smaller independents in requesting that shoppers wear some sort of face protection in all of its stores for the safety of themselves and others.

Unlike Longo's, the rule, which is coming into effect over the next week, will not be compulsory (yet), but the chain will be offering free disposable masks to anyone that walks in the door.

"We will begin requesting that all customers wear masks while shopping in our stores to protect the health and safety of our team members and communities," the bougie Amazon-owned company says in a statement on its website.

"Whole Foods Market will be providing face masks at the entrance of all stores for customers who do not have their own face covering."

Lets not play this game. Not compulsory = not required.

I would expect a company like Whole Foods to make either an official announcement via a press release or a post on their website/social media channels. An unnamed spokesperson in an article hardly qualifies as "official".
