ORLANDO, Fla. – Publix announced masks will be optional for shoppers who are fully vaccinated starting on Saturday.

Customers who are not fully vaccinated will still be required to wear a face covering while shopping.

The move comes a day after the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention issued guidance saying masks are no longer recommended outside and in some indoor settings for anyone who is fully vaccinated.
