According to a  statement issued by Walmart on July 15, all shoppers will be required to wear a face-covering while in the store starting Monday, July 20.

The statement by Walmart says that the decision comes due to the spike in COVID-19 cases in some communities across the country, in addition to the ever-growing list of areas where government mandates on masks are in place.

"As the number of confirmed cases has spiked in communities across the country recently, so too have the number and types of face-covering mandates being implemented. Currently, about 65 percent of our more than 5,000 stores and clubs are located in areas where there is some form of government mandate on face coverings. To help bring consistency across stores and clubs, we will require all shoppers to wear a face-covering starting Monday, July 20."

Walmart said the delay in its new mandatory mask policy will allow for time to inform its customers of the new rule, while also allowing time to post signage and train associates on the new protocols.

According to Walmart, to ensure the consistency of its new mask policy, all stores will have a single entrance.
