Dierbergs Will Require Customers to Wear A Face Covering Beginning Monday, July 20th



For Immediate Release: July 16, 2020
(Updated July 17, 2020)

In light of rising COVID-19 cases and in the interest of associate and customer safety and health, beginning Monday, July 20th, Dierbergs will require that all customers wear a face covering while in store at each of our locations in the counties of St. Charles, St. Louis, Jefferson, Madison and St. Clair. Exceptions will include children age 9 and under and individuals unable to wear a face covering due to a medical condition.

“As a business serving thousands of customers each week, it is important that we take every precaution possible to protect the safety of customers and associates while inside our stores,” said Greg Dierberg, CEO of Dierbergs Markets. “As the medical community has shared more insights about COVID-19, we have operated out of an abundance of caution with establishing enhanced cleaning protocols, requiring our associates and vendors to wear masks and installing plexiglass partitions for added safety. With this new requirement in place, for customers who have a personal preference to not wear a face covering, we partner with Shipt for grocery delivery or curbside pickup.”

Signage will be posted over the weekend at the entrance of each store stating this requirement. For individuals who do not have a mask, Dierbergs will provide one mask to each customer to wear while in store, while supplies last. For those with a medical condition prohibiting the use of face coverings, we ask them to consider alternatives such as a face shield.
