Notice: amp_is_available was called incorrectly. `amp_is_available()` (or `amp_is_request()`, formerly `is_amp_endpoint()`) was called too early and so it will not work properly. WordPress is currently doing the `pre_get_posts` hook. Calling this function before the `wp` action means it will not have access to `WP_Query` and the queried object to determine if it is an AMP response, thus neither the `amp_skip_post()` filter nor the AMP enabled toggle will be considered. It appears the theme with slug `publisher` is responsible; please contact the author. Please see Debugging in WordPress for more information.

said vaccinated customers were no longer required to wear masks in stores, joining other U.S. retailers rethinking their policies after federal health officials relaxed their guidelines.

CVS said customers who aren’t vaccinated “are asked to continue wearing face coverings.” Employees must continue to wear masks. “Health, safety and science will continue to drive our decision-making process,” the company said.

Target said customers and employees who are fully vaccinated against Covid-19 didn’t need face coverings. The company said it would obey local ordinances requiring face coverings, and that it would continue increased safety and cleaning measures, including social distancing, in its stores.
