Effective Nov. 27, Nebraska Furniture Mart will require all customers to wear a mask or face shield for in-store shopping at all NFM locations, according to an announcement from the store.
Entry will only be granted to those wearing a face mask or face shield. Children under the age of 5 are exempt.
The retailer’s mask policy currently allows an exception to be made for customers citing a medical reason for not wearing a mask. Moving forward, anyone who has a medical condition that prevents them from wearing a mask must wear a face shield.
Customers who opt out of wearing a mask or face shield can still take advantage of NFM’s new virtual shopping service or shop online and over the phone, with same-day delivery or pickup available on many in-stock items.
Throughout 2020, NFM has adapted to the ongoing pandemic by introducing new services like virtual shopping and same-day delivery in addition to existing services like online shopping and drive-through pickup, according to a spokesman.
In light of the rising numbers of positive COVID cases throughout the United States, this updated policy is designed to help ensure the health and safety of NFM customers and staff as the retailer enters the busy holiday shopping season. The new face covering policy is expected to remain in effect into 2021, and NFM will continue to update its policies in accordance with recommendations from the CDC and local health departments.
