COVID-19 isn’t going anywhere. That’s our reality and the sooner everyone realizes that we’re in a global pandemic, then the sooner we will flatten the curve. Texas is going backward and for some reason, people don’t want to take this virus seriously.

By wearing masks, consistently cleaning our hands, staying six feet apart, and disengaging from social activities; we can increase our chances of going back to normal. Wearing a face covering can reduce the spread of COVID-19.

Many retailers such as CVS and Walmart made the decision to enforce the mask policy and that directive became in full effect on July 20 nationwide for their stores. But for Target Stores, they implemented the policy on Aug 1. This helps to protect customers and keeps employees safe.

Everyone has to go shopping during this time to buy necessities but shoppers shouldn’t be scared to go into the store. Think about others. Wear your mask.
