Wegmans imposes mask mandate for employees, encourages customers to wear one

Wegmans is joining other large grocery store chains recommending that customers wear masks while indoors.

The move comes as multiple counties in the Finger Lakes reach ‘substantial’ spread, per the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

While not a mandate- customers are recommended to wear a mask whether they have received the COVID-19 vaccine or not.

Employees are also required to wear a mask.

Counties have not instituted any mask mandates, but most are recommending that people wear a mask to slow the spread of the delta variant.
