Wal-Mart and Sam’s Club to require masks at all locations beginning July 20.

BENTVILLE, Ark. – Walmart and Sam’s Club announced Wednesday that they will require customers and members to wear face coverings in their stores and clubs starting Monday, July 20.

Currently, the company that owns both chains says about 65% of its 5,000 stores and clubs are located in areas where there is already some form of government mandate on face coverings.

Company leaders say the mandate will bring consistency across store and help prevent the spread of COVID-19 across the United States.
