About this Deal
Apple will require shoppers to wear masks again at half of its U.S. stores, the company confirmed to USA TODAY.It is the first major retailer to confirm a change to its policy.
The company's updated mask policy begins Thursday, two days after the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention issued new masking guidelines that recommend people vaccinated for the coronavirus start wearing masks indoors again in areas with substantial or high transmission of COVID-19.
The new CDC mask guidance also recommends that people with underlying conditions that may make them more susceptible to the coronavirus wear masks, along with anyone residing with vulnerable people.
Apple stores that require masks are in COVID hotspots or in areas that have local or state mandates, the company said. Stores that require masks are noted on the retailer's website on location webpages.
