Walmart, Costco, Trader Joe’s, and Starbucks are no longer requiring masks for vaccinated customers, starting today.
This comes after the CDC said last Thursday that fully vaccinated Americans, no longer need to wear masks in most settings. So far, you won’t need to show proof of the vaccine it will be on the honor system. However, these stores said masks are optional unless local regulations require them by law and California still hasn’t lifted the mask mandate.
