Home Depot requiring employees to wear masks again

Home Depot requiring employees to wear masks again. Home Depot announced in a company statement it will require all U.S. employees to return to wearing face masks regardless of vaccination status and regardless of the store’s location. The mandate went into effect Monday, and the home improvement retailer joins other notable companies like Target and McDonald’s in changing its policy.

Home Depot said it is following updated masking guidelines provided by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention but will not mandate that customers wear masks.

“As the Delta variant of COVID-19 continues to spread throughout the U.S. … we’ll require all associates, contractors and vendors to wear a mask while indoors at all U.S. Home Depot stores, distribution centers, office locations and customers’ homes or businesses, regardless of vaccination status,” Home Depot said in the statement.

“We’ll ask customers to wear masks while in our stores and continue to offer masks to those who don’t have one.”

There are 67 Home Depot store locations in New Jersey and over 2,200 locations worldwide.
