H-E-B/Central Market: H-E-B and Central Market will continue requiring masks of employees while “urging” customers to wear them. – MSN
“Although there is no longer a statewide mask order, H-E-B believes it is important that masks be worn in public spaces until more Texans and our Partners have access to the COVID-19 vaccine. As an essential service provider during the pandemic, H-E-B is focused on the health and safety of our Partners and customers. H-E-B will still require all our Partners and vendors to wear masks while at work, and we urge all customers to please wear a mask when in our stores.”
While H-E-B and Central Market which is owned by H-E-B are not “mandating” consumers wear masks and are only “urging” them to, the control they are continuing to exert is forcing their employees to continue wearing the masks, along with other mandates, despite the fact that the TX Governor, and other state governors have lifted the state restrictions.
