Marshfield (OnFocus) – Target is the latest in a line of retailers to require face masks in their stores, joining Walmart, Kroger, and Kohl’s.

Target’s policy will go into effect August 1, and everyone (outside of those with underlying medical conditions and young children) will be required to wear a mask.

Target said it will hand out disposable masks at entrances to those who need them. Additionally, there will be added signs and in-store audio announcements to remind visitors to wear masks. Employees will also remind visitors at store entrances.

“Given the guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention on the role masks play in preventing the spread of the coronavirus, our store team members also already wear masks when they come to work, which we provide for them,” Target said in a statement.
