ST. LOUIS – Fully vaccinated people will no longer be required to wear masks when they shop at Schnucks stores. The grocery chain said it will not require customers to show proof of vaccination.
Unvaccinated people will still be required to wear masks, along with all Schnucks employees. Customers may also bring in their own reusable bags from home.
After St. Louis City and County leaders announced it is getting rid of its mask mandate to coincide with the latest CDC guidelines that vaccinated people do not have to wear a mask, some local businesses are ready to do the same, while others plan to still ask patrons to wear a mask.
The new CDC guidance announced Thursday allows fully vaccinated Americans to stop wearing masks indoors in most settings. The new rules will help clear the way for reopening workplaces, schools, and other venues. It also removes the need for social distancing for those who are fully vaccinated.
If you are not vaccinated then experts recommend that you still wear a mask indoors and in crowded outdoor areas. People who have not been vaccinated should also continue to practice social distancing.
