Per CDC Guidance, all Walmart and Sam’s Club associates working in an area of substantial or high transmission are required to wear a mask or face covering while working indoors, regardless of vaccination status. In these counties and where there are state or local mask mandates, associates will be required to wear masks inside our facilities, including stores, clubs, distribution centers, fulfillment centers and our campus offices. The CDC updates its data on transmission rates every Monday, so the guidance on mask usage will change over time in different locations.
Facility Management will also post signage at our stores and clubs to remind customers and members about the CDC’s revised guidance and strongly encourage them to wear masks or face coverings.
N95 Mask Distribution
Over the next few weeks, we will be distributing N95 masks free of charge at more than 5,100 Walmart and Sam’s Club locations as part of the U.S. Federal Retail Pharmacy Program. Masks will be available to individuals, limited to three masks per person. You can pick up your masks at the front of stores, and in clubs, by following signage to help you locate masks and find resources to help you understand proper fitting. At Sam’s Club locations, the general public may get their free masks while supplies allow without a membership.
