Target and Starbucks joined a growing list of retailers and restaurants that will ease mask requirements Monday for fully vaccinated customers unless facial coverings are required by local or state law.

Companies began changing their policies for wearing masks inside stores and cafes after the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said Thursday that fully vaccinated people don’t have to cover their faces indoors anymore.

WalmartCostco, Trader Joe’s and Publix were among the first to allow mask-free shopping. But, Home DepotGap and Ulta Beauty are among the retailers that said they would continue to monitor developments, but maintain their pandemic precautions.
