SAN ANTONIO – H-E-B has updated its mask policy and will now allow partners, vendors and customers to peruse the aisles without a mask.
The Texas grocer was an early adopter of mask use policies and enforced the mask-wearing requirement in May 2020.
The policy change making face coverings optional went into effect Wednesday, according to H-E-B.
“At H-E-B, the health and safety of our Partners and customers is our top priority,” officials said in a statement on the H-E-B website. “Throughout the pandemic, H-E-B has been a leader in developing strong Covid-19 safety measures to protect our Partners, customers, and communities, and we are encouraged by the favorable Covid-19 trends in Texas.”
