BALLSTON SPA, N.Y. (NEWS10) – Vaccinated customers will be allowed into Stewart’s Shops without a mask beginning Wednesday, company president Gary Dake said Tuesday.
The announcement came after Gov. Andrew Cuomo said New York would adopt the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s new mask and social distancing guidance for vaccinated people.
Dake said employees will continue to wear masks until they’re fully vaccinated. If an employee is already fully vaccinated, they can work without a mask beginning May 24.
Stewart’s joined a growing list of retailers announcing a relaxation of mask guidelines for vaccinated people. Target announced they would also allow vaccinated customers inside without a mask, baring any local ordinances. CVS and Home Depot have announced similar policies.
