Over the past few weeks, we’ve seen company after company require workers and request or require customers to wear face masks to help slow the spread of coronavirus. The latest to join the fold is Whole Foods. But they’re bringing it a step further; if you’re not wearing a mask when you enter the store, they’ll give you one.
Amazon announced on its blog last week that Whole Foods Market will soon begin to start offering free face masks to shoppers at stores nationwide.
The company said that disposable masks will be offered upon entry to the store to those who don’t have their own masks.
“We’ve provided over 100 million masks to our global Amazon operations network and Whole Foods Market stores, making them available to all Amazon associates, delivery service partners, Amazon Flex participants, seasonal employees, and Whole Foods Market Team Members. We have enough mask inventory to cover our entire operations and stores network, and we are requiring everyone working in our facilities to take and use them,” the company said in their blog post.
Joe and I made a quick trip to our local Whole Foods last week, just a day before this online announcement was made. There is an employee stationed at the store entrance who seemed to be there to ensure “cleaned” carts remained separate from the “not yet cleaned” ones, and to offer a squirt of hand sanitizer upon request. I’m sure that person will also become, “(s)he who gives out masks,” to those not wearing one. Good thing too, because not all the customers inside were.
