Last updated 7/20/2020 at 10:28pm

Starting Tuesday, Ingles Markets will require customers to wear a face covering to help in the fight against COVID-19, according to a press release.

The Centers for Disease Control (CDC), the release said, states: "Cloth face coverings are one of the most powerful weapons we have to slow and stop the spread of the virus – particularly when used universally within a community setting. Face covering, combined with physical distancing and frequent hand washing, has been proven to reduce the spread."

Signs announcing the face covering requirement are being posted at all store entrances, and in-store announcements are made repeatedly. This requirement will not apply to young children or to customers with medical conditions who are not able to wear a face covering.

In addition to requiring a facial covering, Ingles, the release said, is continuing its enhanced sanitation practices and regularly cleaning all high-touch surfaces to help reduce the spread of COVID-19. This includes one-way aisles to encourage social distancing and the plexiglass sneeze guards.
