H-E-B: Customers Won't be Required to Wear Masks


SAN ANGELO, TX – H-E-B announced Wednesday that the grocer will no longer be forcing customers to wear masks inside of the stores.

As previously reported, on Mar. 2, Gov. Greg Abbott announced that the state wide mask mandate would come to an end next Wednesday, March 10. 

With this new executive order the Governor has put all of the safety protocols in the people and businesses' hands rather than the government's.

Texas favorite grocery store chain H-E-B released a statement on what the plans will be for the future. The following is the statement released from H-E-B:

"Although there is no longer a statewide mask order, H-E-B believes it is important that masks be worn in public spaces until more Texans and our Partners have access to the COVID-19 vaccine. As an essential service provider during the pandemic, H-E-B is focused on the health and safety of our Partners and customers. H-E-B will still require all our Partners and vendors to wear masks while at work, and we urge all customers to please wear a mask when in our stores."
