Kroger Houston Statement on Masks for Associates and Customers
THE WOODLANDS, TX -- As an essential business, we’ve been balancing our most urgent priority to provide a safe environment for our associates and customers with open stores, ecommerce solutions and an efficiently operating supply chain, so that our communities always have access to fresh, affordable food and products.
We have provided masks for all our store associates to wear, and we’ll be requiring associates to wear them in all of our store locations. Our associates are also welcome to bring their own suitable masks or facial coverings to work, if they prefer.
We recognize that some associates, due to medical reasons or other circumstances, may not be able to wear a mask. Such situations will be addressed on a case-by-case basis. We are sourcing face shields to provide to those associates and will also explore other potential options, as needed.
Additionally, we also encourage all our customers to wear a mask when they visit our stores, or alternatively, consider one of our ecommerce options available at kroger.com.
