BALLSTON SPA, N.Y. (NEWS10) – Stewart’s Shops President Gary Dake announced on Tuesday that vaccinated customers will be allowed into stores without a mask starting May 19. This comes after Gov. Cuomo announced a change in his mask mandate allowing vaccinated individuals to not wear a mask in buildings.

Dake said that employees will be able to remove their masks on May 24 or until they show proof they are fully vaccinated.

A spokesperson for the company said that customers will not be required to show proof of vaccination.

Stewart’s joins the growing list of retailers announcing a relaxation of mask guidelines for vaccinated people. Target announced they would also allow vaccinated customers inside without a mask, baring any local ordinances. CVS, Home Depot, Trader Joe’s and others have announced similar policies.
