(ST. JOSEPH, Mo.) While the CDC highly suggests the public wear face masks when they leave their home, it is now policy for pharmacy workers. 

Hy-Vee has provided fabric masks to all of their employees across their eight state region, which is over 80,000 employees. While it is voluntary for grocery store workers, Hy-Vee is following new CDC guidelines for their pharmacists to wear masks.
