ALBERTVILLE, Ala.- Effective Thursday, May 20, 2021, Food City associates who are fully vaccinated against COVID-19 as defined by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) will no longer be required to wear a face mask, unless required by state or local laws. 

Business leaders told News 19 that fully vaccinated associates will have a vaccination logo displayed on their name badge. 

Their statement said fully vaccinated customers can shop without their masks as well, but are encouraged to continue wearing a mask if they have not been vaccinated or if they prefer to do so as a safety precaution. 

Food City representatives said they will continue to encourage social distancing and provide hand sanitizer, cart wipes and enhanced cleaning procedures in all stores.
