Walmart to Require Customers to Wear Masks at All Its Stores


Walmart will require customers to wear face coverings at all of its namesake and Sam’s Club stores, making it the largest retailer to introduce such a policy that has otherwise proven difficult to enforce without state and federal requirements.

The company said the policy will go into effect on Monday to allow time to inform stores and customers. The Bentonville, Arkansas-based company said that currently about 65% its more than 5,000 stores and clubs are located in areas where there is already some form of government mandate on face coverings.

  1. Before you say that masks are dangerous and kill, just remember that the Mishna Berura says that during a time when a מגפה exists in a light form, one who goes it should be forced to wear a mask. It is true that he is discussing protecting the wearer. He is not discussing protecting others. However, if it is such a simple fact that you claim that anybody with sechel can understand that masks kill, then why would the חפץ חיים ever require one to wear a mask. And how did Rav Chaim Kanievsky pasken Pesach time quote this Mishna Berura and say that the psak applied at that point. Do you mean to say that they couldn’t understand a simple fact that even you realize, that masks are dangerous and kill?

    Even if you find another Gadol who qualifies to argue on the חפץ חיים, calling those who believe the חפץ חיים ‘sheeple’ risks …. מבזה תלמיד חכם (החפץ חיים) שאין לו. After all, if I am a sheeple for trusting the Chofetz Chaim that masks are safe, then what would you call the Chofetz Chaim?

    (I don’t mean to say that in communities where there is very little or no spread at this point that the Mishna Berura’s would have paskened to wear masks. I am not qualified to pasken. But I do know that ridiculing those who trust the Mishna Berura to a terrible aveira.

    • Shame on you for forcing people to injure themselves. If you can wear one, fine, but have some respect and feeling for others.

      #1 If murdering hundreds of patients in hospitals is a mageifeh, then the Holocaust was a bigger mageifeh.
      #2 The Chofetz Chaim is speaking about protecting oneself. Nowhere does he mention that one is obligated to suffocate in a mask to protect others, especially when doctors, including Dr Fauci, an infectious diseases doctor, have clearly proven that masks do NOT protect against the virus.
      #3 Rav Chaim Kanievsky shlit”a did not demand that healthy people wear masks to protect others.
      #4 A LOT of Gedolei Yisroel have a different shitta.
      #5 NOBODY called the Chofetz Chaim zt”l ‘sheeple’. It’s a bigger aveira to fabricate lies to prove your point. Show us a link where this was posted. I’m not holding my breath because you will not find it. Liar!

      Emunas tzaddikim is one thing but facts is another story. Why wouldn’t you (or anyone else who understands what’s going on) read the following posts from David Hope and bring it all over to Rav Chaim shlit”a he should be informed of the actual facts
      (IFFFFF the gabo’im, meshamshim bakodesh, and grandchildren would allow you to bring it to Rav Chaim!!!)
      and let’s see what he would say then???

      1 Masks are dangerous to the wearer and provide no protection to the people around you!
      The above movie is not science at all we are not talking about bacteria and other harmless germs we are talking about the COVID 19 virus and for this no masks help see this scientific report:
      2 Lack of sufficient oxygen for lungs!:
      3 Mask test :
      5 Zero evidence that wearing masks protect anyone from covid! hear the Utah report

  2. Every Walmart parking lot and floors inside is littered with masks and gloves. More proof it’s all bogus.

  3. When Rav Chaim was told that people say that he is fed information by his gabaim about politics and is used as a buba (puppet) to say what the gabbaim want, he responded that this already happened to משה רבינו. When asked to elaborate he said בקיצור הם משוגעים. This is on video. So in other words Rav Chaim called people like you משוגעים. Anyway Rav Chaim clearly paskened that all wear masks in Eretz Yisroel now, and if one can’t for health reasons he should daven at home. I am not sure where you get your info. To say that Rav Chaim would listen to some David Hope more than to frum Drs. is absolutely ridiculous. I am impressed that you know how Rav Chaim would think.
