While Walmart made a rule requiring customers to wear masks, they find it difficult to enforce and are hence allowing customers to shop without masks
However, Walmart said that 65% of its more than 5,000 US stores and Sam's Clubs were in areas where there is a government mandate on face coverings - yet they are still allowing customers to shop without masks since they feel they cannot physically block customers. Some tactics they are using are making masks available at the entrance. Walmart has said that while they do try to find solutions for customers who are not wearing face coverings, from time to time, they do need to call the police for assistance if customers become belligerent.
