Face coverings will be provided for customers who do not have one, according to the company.

Small children and those who cannot wear a mask due to health reasons will be allowed to enter the store without a face covering.

“This new requirement, which starts July 15, will help protect not only our shoppers and communities, but also the tens of thousands of Best Buy employees working to serve our customers each day,” the company said. “Although the risk of infection cannot be completely eliminated as long as there is community spread of COVID-19, we’re grateful to our customers and employees for working together to do what we can to keep us all safe.”
