FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. – Starting Wednesday, August 12, the wearing of face masks will become mandatory at all Walmart locations across Canada.

Regardless of local laws, customers and employees at any Walmart Canada location will be required to wear a mask as a way to help combat the spread of COVID-19.

A spokesperson from Walmart Canada says over 60 percent of the more than 400 Canadian locations were already in regions where face masks are required in any public indoor space.
