As COVID-19 mask debate rages on, retailers reluctantly take brunt of enforcement
July 1, 2020
ome Minnesotans may be loosening their own rules of when to where a mask, if at all, to help stem the spread of COVID-19. But retailers are staying firm with theirs, and some municipalities are joining them.
At the Menards in Maplewood, a large sign secured to a tarp informs customers that masks are required to shop at the home improvement store.
Like Target and most grocery stores, all employees are required to wear masks. And like Costco, Menards also mandates masks for customers in most of its locations, including the Twin Cities.
