Kroger will transition to a mandatory face mask policy for all employees starting Sunday.

According to an email sent to customers, the company will provide masks for all Kroger associates, unless an employee prefers to wear their own suitable mask from home.

Kroger said they are working to supply face shields for employees who are unable to wear a mask for medical or other reasons.

The email also encourages customers to wear a face mask while shopping, which has been recommended by the CDCto prevent the spread of the virus.
