Kroger Drops Facemask Requirement One of the country’s largest grocery chains is dropping its facemask requirement. Kroger is the latest retailer to announce it would no longer require fully vaccinated customers to mask up, starting today. Employees will also no longer be required to wear masks, except for pharmacy and clinic workers. Kroger is the country’s second-largest retailer behind Walmart, and includes chains like Ralph’s, Fred Meyer, Harris Teeter, Dillons, and Food 4 Less. Have you been to a store without a mask yet? Did it feel strange?
