Publix COVID-19 Vaccine: Pharmacy makes masks optional for people fully vaccinated against COVID-19

Publix is modifying its mask policies as a result of the recently updated U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) guidance.

Publix will no longer require fully vaccinated associates or customers to wear face coverings, unless required by a state or local order or ordinance, beginning May 15.

Publix will still require masks to be worn in stores if required by orders or ordinances from state and/or local governments.

The news comes a day after the CDC removed mask mandates and social distancing from its COVID-19 guidelines.

South Carolina has also since eased up on mask restrictions, with state health officials also saying masks no longer need to be worn by fully vaccinated individuals, with a few exceptions.

Walmart, Sam’s Club and Costco each announced Friday that they will be lifting mask requirements in their stores as well.
