Another major grocery retailer has joined the growing list that require patrons to wear face masks. Starting August 29, 2020 wearing a face mask at Real Canadian Superstores and No Frills’ becomes mandatory.
So now the 2 of the largest grocery outlets in Canada have a mandatory mask policy. This comes at no surprise though as the number of COVID-19 cases continues to rise. Health officials continue to stress the wearing of a face mask, along with washing hands and social distancing is needed to help against the spread of this virus.
Walmart was one of the first to require masks, and now Real Canadian Superstore.
Various news outlets across the country have not yet been able to verify if mandatory masks will also become mandatory at other Loblaws owned businesses, including Shopper’s Drug Mart, but I believe we can expect that announcement to come soon as well.
More and more businesses are stepping up to try and do their part in corralling the coronavirus and preventing it’s spread. Until we start seeing case numbers decrease, we can expect to see more and more retailers following suit.
