Major truck stop chain to require face masks nationwide starting July 29

Love's

Customers will be required to wear a face covering at all Love’s truck stop locations starting in a little over a week.

On July 21, Love’s Travel Stops made the announcement that all customers will be required to wear a face covering at at every Love’s Travel Stop, Love’s Country Store, Love’s Truck Care and Speedco location across the country in an attempt to slow the spread of COVID-19.

The mask requirement will go into effect on Wednesday, July 29.

Love’s says that masks will be available for purchase for customers who do not have one.

“We are joining other retailers by implementing a face covering policy for customers, and will continue to follow the guidance of health officials and adjust our practices to help keep our customers and team members safe,” said Shane Wharton, president of Love’s. “We want to thank our customers who continue to adapt to these protective measures implemented at Love’s.”

Other national retailers including Walmart, Target, Home Depot, and Lowe’s have recently implemented similar face mask requirements for customers.
