It looks like things are slowly getting back to normal. The CDC has advised that it is okay to lift the mask mandate and the president did his first press conference without a mask. Following this, several states lifted their mask mandates.
Now, the stores are beginning to follow suit, lifting their mask mandates. This afternoon, Trader Joe’s announced the end of their in-store mask mandate. The biggest retailer, in the United States is now announcing the end of their mask mandate.
Walmart is the latest company to lift their mask mandate, with a few exceptions. All vaccinated employees and customers are free to enter the stores without masks. This is allowed, only in states and municipalities that have lifted their mask mandates.
