DJ Biggest US Retailer Walmart Introduces Facial Cover Policy -- ESG Insight

Commentary by Christian Brunnstrom, research analyst, ESG & impact investing

Walmart said Wednesday it will require customers to wear masks in all of its more than 5,000 stores and clubs in the U.S., starting Monday. Daily coronavirus cases keep hitting new highs across the U.S., which still lacks a national policy in place for facial coverings. The biggest retailer in the U.S. follows other companies such as Best Buy, Starbucks and Costco Wholesale in enforcing their own policies in a socially positive effort to protect its customers and workers, and to stop the spread of the coronavirus. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommends using cloth face coverings in public settings, saying it may help prevent spreading the virus.

DJ美国最大零售商沃尔玛推出面部护理政策--ESG Insight

ESG&Impact Investment研究分析师Christian Brunnstrom评论

沃尔玛周三表示,从周一开始,它将要求美国所有5000多家门店和俱乐部的顾客戴口罩。每天的冠状病毒病例在美国各地不断创下新高,美国仍然缺乏针对面部覆盖的全国性政策。这家美国最大的零售商效仿百思买(Best Buy)、星巴克(Starbucks)和好市多(Costco Wholesale)等其他公司,执行自己的政策,以保护其客户和工人,并阻止冠状病毒的传播。疾病控制和预防中心建议在公共场所使用布质面罩,称这可能有助于防止病毒传播。
