Richmond supermarket says customers must wear masks

'No mask, no entry'

A Richmond grocery store is telling customers “no mask, no entry.”

New 2000 Supermarket has posted a sign on its door saying all customers must wear a mask if they want to enter the store, according to photos shared by Ming Pao Daily News, a Richmond-based Chinese-language newspaper organization. 

“You can purchase one at the counter for $1.50 if you don’t have one,” reads the sign in translation from Chinese.

These posters are leaving people wondering if these policies are necessary and if it’s appropriate to take away additional medical supplies that are already running short for health-care workers, according to reports from Ming Pao.

A resident told Ming Pao $1.50 sounds pretty expensive for one mask, but he had to buy one to continue his grocery shopping at the store. Along with masks, the store is asking people to wear gloves which they are giving away for free.
