Truck stop giant to drop mask requirements for fully vaccinated customers

Love’s Travel Stops announced that the company will be ending face mask requirements for some customers and employees starting next week.

As of June 15, 2021, customers and employees who are fully vaccinated against COVID-19 will no longer be required to wear masks in Love’s truck stop locations.

Customers and workers who are not fully vaccinated will be asked to continue wearing masks, the company says.

Love’s points out that many states, cities, and counties have their own masking requirements and they will continue to comply with those requirements.

Love’s has had a masking requirement in place for all customers and workers since July 2020.

“The past 15 months have been challenging for customers and team members, so we’re pleased the country has made such great strides against the pandemic to get to this point,” said Love’s President Shane Wharton. “We will continue to be diligent about health and safety as ever before. We want to thank our customers for wearing masks in our stores and for the patience they’ve shown as we worked toward this decision.”

Love’s says that they will continue to practice stringent disinfection procedures along with social distancing and the use of plexiglass barriers at store locations.
