(WKBN) – With the Centers for Disease Control announcing Thursday that people fully vaccinated for COVID-19 can go mask-free in most settings, one grocery store chain says you will still need to wear a mask to enter.

Giant Eagle issued a statement Thursday night saying, “the health and wellbeing of their team members remains a top priority. As we actively evaluate the shifts in state and CDC guidance, we will continue to require anyone working or shopping in our stores to wear a mask or face covering.”

Giant Eagle has not yet determined its mask policy post-June 2, which is the day that mask restrictions are lifted in Ohio.
