New York City’s ABC News affiliate reports:
Walgreens, Whole Foods and Kroger-owned stores have joined a list of businesses that say fully vaccinated people no longer need to wear masks in their stores, following the CDC’s recommendation.
All three stores — like Walmart, Trader Joe’s and Costco before them — say the policy only changes if local regulations allow it.
Unvaccinated patrons still need to wear their masks. Mask-wearing is still required for all employees. Their new policies went into effect Wednesday.
