Richard Shuster started this petition to Publix Super Markets

Florida Leads the Nation in the number of COVID-19 new cases.  Publix, the leading grocer in Florida has 831 grocery stores in Florida more than all other grocery chains combined.  Employees at 30 Central Florida Publix locations have tested Positive for COVID-19.  A mandatory mask policy will protect Publix Employees from asymptomatic co-workers and from infected shoppers who could expose Publix staff to COVID.  Likewise, a mandatory mask policy will help prevent one shopper from transmitting COVID-19. 

While masks are mandatory in many Florida Counties including Miami-Dade, Broward, Palm Beach, Seminole, Orange and Alachua, other counties have failed to adopt mask requirements.  With so many people in Publix stores, Publix should act to protect its shoppers, its staff, and its community.   In the alternative, Publix should adopt a mandatory mask policy five days a week so that shoppers, especially elderly shoppers, who wish to avoid unmasked shoppers and staff can do so.
