Walgreens Updates Face-Covering Guidance for Team Members

Following new Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) guidelines, we are updating face covering guidance for our team members. In states where rates of hospitalizations remain high and hospital capacity low, team members, regardless of vaccination status, will be required to wear face coverings. In states where there are fewer rates of hospitalizations and more hospital capacity, team members have the option to wear face coverings while at work, regardless of vaccination status.

 Team members administering vaccinations and testing will still be required to wear face coverings and we will comply with local mask mandates that are in effect. We will continue to evaluate our policy based on guidance from the CDC plus local and state health officials.
