On Friday, August 6, 2021, Cook County Public Health issued a statement strongly recommending wearing a mask in public, indoor settings regardless of a person’s vaccination status. Mask use is a simple way to further reduce the chance of the virus spreading in our community, particularly among those who are not fully vaccinated. As a result of their announcement, all Cook County Whole Foods Co-op employees will be required to wear a face covering while at work. We will strongly suggest that shoppers wear face coverings, but we will not require shoppers to mask up at this time. Hand sanitizer and cart wipes will be available at the door. Face masks will be available free of charge while supplies last.
Please consider getting vaccinated if you have not already done so. Information on getting vaccinated in Cook County is available at cookcountycovid19.org.
