Retailers and businesses face the challenging task of deciding whether to keep or drop their mask policies following the new CDC mask guidelines released Thursday (5/13). Following the announcement, 13 states have lifted their mask restrictions for fully vaccinated people who are no longer required to wear a mask outside or in most indoor spaces.
Gov. Gretchen Whitmer updated the state's relaxed mask rule via twitter (5/15), saying that all Michiganders whom are two weeks out from their second dose of the COVID-19 vaccine can go without a mask indoors and outdoors.
Target has dropped its mask requirement for fully vaccinated customers, joining with Walmart, Trader Joe's, Starbucks, Costco and other businesses. States and businesses can still maintain their existing mask rules if they want - and some retailers have already said that fully vaccinated people must continue to wear masks in-store.
