Walmart Moves to Require Masks at All Locations as Coronavirus Cases Surge

If the local governments won’t mandate masks, it seems as though the corporate world will.

As the nation braces for a devastating second wave of COVID-19, there has been a renewed push from the private sector to help keep Americans as safe as possible.  After all, our nation’s businesses would like to see America get back to whatever “normal” is going to look like sooner rather than later.

But Americans are stubborn.  Always have been, and we always will be.  We didn’t want to pay taxes on tea and so we decided to start a war with the world’s most powerful military.

Now, after state and local authorities have repeatedly suggested that we wear masks to slow the spread of coronavirus, and Americans have repeatedly rebuked those authorities, several major corporations are making face coverings mandatory in order to shop in their stores.

“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,” the retail giant said in a blog post.

The move will almost certainly be met with some backlash, much as the similar mandates at rival big-box retailer CostCo was lambasted by some Americans.
