Ingles Markets, Incorporated announced on Monday their plans to require customers to wear a face covering to help in the fight against COVID-19.
Signs announcing the face covering requirement are being posted at all our store entrances, and in store announcements are made repeatedly.
The requirement goes into effect in all retail locations beginning Tuesday, July 21, 2020.
It 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 is continuing their enhanced sanitation practices and regularly cleaning all high-touch surfaces to help reduce the spread of COVID-19.
One-way aisles to encourage social distancing remain in place as will our plexiglass sneeze guards.
