Ridgewood NJ, The United States’ most ubiquitous coffee chain, Starbucks, is now requiring customers to wear masks at all of its US locations, starting July 15. Mask use mandates in the US continue to vary by state; however, the new Starbucks policy will be applied consistently, regardless of the state’s policy. Customers who do not wish to wear masks may be able to purchase coffee and other products via drive-through windows, curbside pickup, or delivery. Several other national business chains have implemented similar mask mandates at all locations, including Costco, and other national chains have called on governors to mandate mask use statewide, following high-profile conflicts and incidents at stores across the country.
