Lowe’s Companies Inc. announced that effective Aug. 2, all Lowe’s employees must wear masks indoors at all U.S. locations and while working in a customer’s home or business even if they’ve been vaccinated.
The company said this mandate was made because of the increased cases of COVID-19 and the rapid spread of the delta variant.
“Lowe’s will continue to abide by all state and local mask mandates. Stores will have signs encouraging customers to wear masks, and free masks will continue to be available for customers who request them,” it stated.
A Lowe’s press release said the company has committed nearly $1.3 billion in COVID-related support for Lowe’s employees, store safety and community pandemic relief.
