But they will not ask for proof so how do we good Vaxxers continue to virtue signal? This is B.S.
It’s starting. A day after the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention issued new guidelines saying fully vaccinated people can go without masks in most places, some stores dropped their mask requirements for customers. Walmart, Costco, Sam’s Club, Publix, and Trader Joe’s are just some of the big-name stores that have already made the change, saying fully vaccinated people can go mask-free except where a mask is required by state or local mandates.
The stores still say unvaccinated people should wear masks. “In accordance with CDC guidelines, individuals who are not fully vaccinated are required to use face coverings over their noses and mouths while inside any Publix store,” the grocery store chain said in a statement, for example. But really the change is just a blanket green light for anyone to shop without a mask because there is no way employees could corroborate the vaccination status of their customers. “We will not require proof of vaccination, but we ask for members’ responsible and respectful cooperation with this revised policy,” Costco said in a statement updating its mask policy. The stores are also allowing most vaccinated employees to go mask-free.
