I've had to make a few shopping trips for essential items and before I get out of my car, I stick my blue mask on.  I'll admit, the first time I put it on it was awkward and I felt like everyone was staring at me.  But, wearing a mask is helping us all stay safe and so I'll keep throwing that mask on for you.  A store in Rochester is asking you to do the same on your next shopping trip.

Rochester has 4 Hy-Vee locations and all employees are now required to wear a mask while at work.  They would also appreciate it if customers would wear one while shopping.

Starting today, all Hy-Vee store employees will be required to wear masks while serving you, our loyal customers. Over the past several weeks, we have followed the CDC’s guidance and highly recommended their usage; however, we want to take those precautions to protect our communities a step further by making the wearing of masks by our employees mandatory. We also strongly encourage our customers to wear masks when visiting as well. On behalf of our more than 80,000 employees – thank you for shopping with us! #HelpfulSmileStrong  - Hy-Vee Facebook Page
