Drink Coffee Through a Mask: Starbucks Will Require Customers To Wear Face Masks July 15th

Starbucks announced Thursday that beginning July 15, it will require customers to wear facial coverings while visiting all company-owned stores in the U.S.

“The company is committed to playing a constructive role in supporting health and government officials as they work to mitigate the spread of COVID-19,” Starbucks said in a statement posted Thursday.

Starbucks employees have been required to wear masks since April, but the coffee chain had yet to require facial coverings for customers, CNN reported.

Since not all local governments have mandated masks, those customers not wearing one can order from the drive-thru, curbside pickup or delivery, Starbucks said.

There is not yet a nationwide mandate to wear a mask, though around 20 states and Washington, DC, have established a statewide mask requirement, according to CNN.
