WEST DES MOINES, Iowa (KCAU) – Starting July 27, Hy-Vee will start distributing free masks to customers.
By launching a new initiative called “Mask It Up To Shut COVID Down. It’s Your Choice,” Hy-Vee will hand out more than 3 million free masks to help support the CDC’s recommendation to wear masks in public.
During the campaign, employees will stand outside of entrances to offer masks to customers who came to the store without. Some additional reminders of the campaign include signage and employee attire, among others.
Since the near beginning of the pandemic, employees of Hy-Vee have been wearing masks.
Hy-Vee was named one of the top three supermarkets in America for its handling of the COVID-19 crisis.
