The U.S. Centers for Disease Control (CDC) recently announced new guidance regarding the need for masks to protect against COVID-19. The CDC now says that fully vaccinated people (2 weeks after the second dose in a 2-dose series, or 2 weeks after a single-dose vaccine) no longer need to wear a mask in most settings, unless required by state and local laws.
Effective May 19, 2021, customers in CONNECTICUT locations will not be required to wear a face mask if they are fully vaccinated unless local restrictions apply. If local restrictions require the wearing of a face mask beyond that date, signs will continue to be posted on the entrance doors.
Effective May 29, 2021, customers in MASSACHUSETTS locations will not be required to wear a face mask if they are fully vaccinated unless local restrictions apply. If local restrictions require the wearing of a face mask beyond that date, signs will continue to be posted on the entrance doors.
