Target, McDonald’s, Old Navy now require face masks amid COVID-19. See the full list of businesses requiring them.

The nation’s largest retailers are now requiring what some states and cities won’t: the use of face masks.

Walmart, Target, CVS, Walgreens and Kroger are the biggest to announce  mask mandates at stores nationwide joining the list of businesses with face covering requirements growing as COVID-19 cases rise. The coronavirus causes the disease COVID-19.

Dozens and dozens of states now require masks in public places, with Alabama, Arkansas and Colorado recently adding mandates. One state went in the opposite direction this week when Georgia Gov. Brian Kemp suspended all local government mask orders on July 15.  

Individual businesses can choose to institute further restrictions, and the National Retail Federation is encouraging retailers to set nationwide mask policies to protect shoppers and employees.

McDonald’s Will Require All Customers To Wear Masks Inside Its U.S. Restaurants

McDonald’s will require customers inside all of its U.S. restaurants to wear masks or face coverings beginning Aug. 1.

The massive fast-food chain announced the decision Friday in a company letter, framing it as a necessary step in the nationwide effort to check the spread of COVID-19.

The company said it would also install protective panels throughout its dining and cooking areas, and said it has delayed reopening dining rooms for an additional 30 days.

“The latest science suggests droplets have the potential to stay in the air for extended periods of time, increasing the risk of virus spread, especially from asymptomatic carriers,” the letter, co-authored by McDonald’s USA President Joe Erlinger, reads. “As a result, the most recent guidance from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) reiterates face coverings are an effective way to prevent the spread of COVID-19.

“To that end, and in order to protect the safety

US hits daily record; New Jersey to require masks outdoors; United Airlines announces major layoffs

As the Ivy League cancelled fall sports over coronavirus concerns Wednesday, hospitalizations continued to rise and ICU beds were quickly filling as the nation surpassed 3 million coronavirus cases.

The stunning milestone hit less than six months after the first confirmed case was reported Jan. 21, in Everett, Washington. Tuesday saw a record 60,021 new cases as the nationwide surge showed no signs of ebbing. In hopes slowing spread in his state, New Jersey Gov. Phil Murphy said he would require masks outdoors.

The number of new daily cases has risen exponentially since the middle of last month, reaching a record high of 57,209 on July 3. At a Senate hearing last week, Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute for Allergy and Infectious Diseases, testified that the U.S. is “going in the wrong direction” and that he “would not be surprised if we go up to 100,000 a

Customers in England may be asked to register when they arrive at pubs and restaurants as part of the the Government’s plan for reopening the hospitality sector, Matt Hancock has suggested.

The Health Secretary has confirmed that ministers will announce a further easing of the lockdown this week, with restrictions potentially lifting as soon as July 4.

Asked about reports that ministers are considering plans to ask diners and drinkers to register as they enter a venue, he said: “I wouldn’t rule that out. There are other countries in the world that take that approach.”

It follows the news that Boris Johnson is set to announce a new “one metre plus” rule for all venues, including shops, restaurants, schools, offices, and parks, in an overhaul designed to unlock swathes of the economy.

The move, which would take effect from July 4, is understood to
