Starting Thursday, Wegmans shoppers no longer required to wear mask
ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WHEC) — The Rochester-based grocery store is planning to go along with Gov. Hochul’s recent decision to lift the state’s mask mandate.
Shoppers at Wegmans will no longer be required to wear a mask inside stores, starting as soon as Thursday, February 10.
"Following Governor Hochul’s lifting of the mask mandate, starting tomorrow 2/10, customers are no longer required to wear a mask while shopping in our stores," Wegmans said in a brief statement on the situation.
Since the mask mandate began, mask wearing in the grocery store chain has been a hot topic as some customers refused to follow the rules. Now, their policy is changing.
