On Feb. 25, 2022, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) updated metrics for determining COVID-19 behavior guidance. To learn more about the latest CDC guidance, visit Use and Care of Masks | CDC
Following this guidance, Team Members are no longer required to wear masks or face coverings unless required by local authorities. Pharmacy Team Members will continue to wear masks when providing direct patient care, such as vaccinations or testing. Team Members and Guests that choose to wear a mask or protective face covering are welcomed to do so.
If you are at potential increased risk for COVID-19, we encourage you to speak with your healthcare provider for mask guidance when shopping in retail stores.
To ensure Team Members and Guest safety, we will continue many of the enhanced safety and sanitization efforts that have helped provide a safe shopping and working environment throughout the pandemic, including:
Making hand sanitizer available
Cleaning high-touch surfaces
Making surgical masks available to Guests at service desks
If CDC guidance changes in the future or we witness increases in positive cases across our communities, we will re-evaluate our approach to masking as needed.
