LAKE GENEVA — Large retailers are dropping mask requirements for vaccinated shoppers following the latest guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

According to the CDC, fully vaccinated people can resume activities without wearing a mask or physically distancing, except where required by federal, state, local, tribal, or territorial laws, rules, and regulations, including local business and workplace guidance.

Those who have not been vaccinated, however, remain at risk to catch COVID-19 from other non-vaccinated shoppers who decide to not wear masks.

Target stores on Monday updated their policies as well.

“Given the CDC’s updated guidance, Target no longer requires fully vaccinated guests and team members to wear face coverings in our stores, except where it’s required by local ordinances,” Target posted in its website.

“Face coverings continue to be strongly recommended for guests and team members who are not fully vaccinated and we continue our increased safety and cleaning measures, including social distancing, throughout our stores,” the update read.
