Wegmans No Longer Requiring Masks For Fully Vaccinated Customers

WEST ELLICOTT — In accordance with CDC guidance on masking and distancing, Wegmans stores will no longer require fully vaccinated customers to wear face coverings in New York. 

A Wegmans spokesperson says the new policy applies to stores in New York state. 

Wegmans shoppers have been required to wear face coverings in stores since the early stages of the pandemic last year. 

At this time, it is not clear if vaccine verification will be checked for customers at stores, or if it will be an honor system, like some other local businesses are doing: 

The new guidance still calls for wearing masks in crowded indoor settings like buses, planes, hospitals, prisons and homeless shelters but helps clear the way for reopening workplaces, schools, and other venues — even removing the need for masks or social distancing for those who are fully vaccinated. The CDC also no longer recommends that fully vaccinated people wear masks outdoors in crowds.
