Local based grocery giant H-E-B still wants to let their customers know that they will still have their partners and vendors wear face coverings while in their stores and also urge customers to do the same while in the shopping in any of their stores.
“Although there is no longer a statewide mask order, H-E-B believes it is important that masks be worn in public spaces until more Texans and our Partners have access to the COVID-19 vaccine,” she said in a statement. “As an essential service provider during the pandemic, H-E-B is focused on the health and safety of our Partners and customers. H-E-B will still require all our Partners and vendors to wear masks while at work, and we urge all customers to please wear a mask when in our stores.”
Governor Greg Abbott announced Tuesday, March 2 that he lifted the Texas wide mask mandate and also opened up the Lone Star state to 100%.
