Woodman's Market has joined a list of other retailers requiring face-coverings for shoppers.

The market announced that its face-covering requirement would go into effect on July 20.

"As we continue to monitor the COVID-19 situation, keeping the health and safety of both our employees and customers top of mind, Woodman’s Food Markets will begin requiring a face covering (covering both mouth and nose) to shop in all of our stores," said the market on Facebook. "We have required the use of a face-covering by our staff and all others performing work in our stores (vendors, merchandisers, etc.) since the beginning of April."

Face masks will be available to purchase if a shopper does not have one.

Several retailers have announced a face-mask requirement, including Pick 'n Save, Metro Market, Kohl's, Target and more.
