To help protect the safety and health of their team members and communities, Whole Foods will be requesting customers wear masks in their stores.
Within the next week, they will be offering free, disposable masks to all Whole Foods Market customers nationwide when they arrive at the store to shop. If customers don't already have their own face covering, they will be able to pick up a mask at the entrance of the Whole Foods Market store.
Earlier this week, they announced they have provided over 100 million masks to global Amazon operations network and Whole Foods Market stores, making them available to all Amazon associates, delivery service partners, Amazon Flex participants, seasonal employees, and Whole Foods Market Team Members.
They have enough mask inventory to cover entire operations and stores network, and are requiring everyone working in our facilities to take and use them.
Whole Foods and Amazon will keep evaluating how to best support their teams and communities, and will continue rolling out measures to protect the health and safety of every person helping customers get what they need during this difficult time.
