Target Requires Its Customers to Wear Masks Starting August 1

All of Target’s employees are already required to wear face coverings, but starting August 1, Target customers will be required to wear a mask to shop in all of its stores.

The company says it will provide disposable masks at entrances to customers who don’t have one.

The disposable masks will be free-of-charge.

The retailer notes nearly 90-percent of its stores already required masks or facial coverings because of local and state regulations.

Target says young children and those with underlying medical conditions are exempt from the mask mandate.
