Clay: COVID IS OVER! Mask Mandate Dropped at Walmart, Trader Joe’s, and Costco Stores Nationwide

Americans are back to participating in their two favorite pastimes without needing to wear a mask: sporting events and buying in bulk.

As Clay correctly states, this news joins a string of headlines that confirm one reality any sane person has already known for months: “Covid is officially over.”

Beginning today, three of the nation’s largest grocery chains, Walmart, Trader Joe’s, and Costco, will no longer require customers to wear a mask when shopping at any of their locations. The lifting of restrictions has been approved for all Americans that have received full vaccination, no proof needed.

The news is an outright HALLELUJAH to anyone that has ever walked right up to a storefront only to walk 10 minutes back to their car to grab a mask or forced to wear their wife’s spare.

The guidelines still encourage stores to follow state and local mandates, which at this point would contradict the public health guidelines released by the CDC on Thursday.

“We are also reviewing whether masks may still be required for certain job codes for health and sanitation purposes and will share additional guides soon,” reads the report, which should temporarily hold off a wave of outcry from mask devotees.

The update to CDC guidelines instructing Americans to ditch the mask for any type of indoor gathering has already inspired counties like Los Angeles to run on social media and uphold their COVID restrictions.

Looks like this upcoming Fourth of July may see an abundance in Kirkland Signature Vodka and 48-ct of Nathan’s hot dogs unlike any Independence Day before it. Throw in some Vanilla Bean Sheet Cake from Trader’s for dessert and a slice of Costco pizza for good measure.

Your move, Target.

  1. The loony lefties will never give up their masks
    that’s ok we walk through Walmart,Trader Joe’s and Costco we will know who the libtards are
    Avoid those fools at all costs

  2. Now the work really starts to begin – to root out the fascists who exploited this pandemic for political, social, and monetary gain. Never forget what has been wrought through the bastardization of science and public health, and it is not over. Free “from” does not mean freedom as long as Democrats are running the show, with RINO lackeys in tow. Oh, and Cuomo should be in fucking jail.

  3. Ran my usual Saturday errands today and I would say 85% of customers and all store employees were masked up. Nobody said anything or shot any dirty looks at me.
