FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WFFT) — All Kroger stores, and their affiliates, are now allowing fully-vaccinated customers go maskless.
The new mask policy at Kroger for vaccinated customers went into effect Thursday nationwide.
The grocery store chain updated its mask policy Wednesday, following updated guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
“If there is a state or local mandate, we will adhere to that requirement and its timeline,” the grocery store chain said in a release.
Customers and employees who are not fully-vaccinated for COVID-19 will be asked to continue wearing masks.
However, employees who work in the pharmacy and clinic locations will continue wearing masks.
Kroger said it would “continue to respect the choice of individuals who prefer to continue wearing a mask."
