Starbucks is one of the many businesses to soon reopen in Vancouver, but before you can step in for a latte, you’ll be encouraged wear a mask.

The coffee chain will begin recommending customers wear a face covering before entering, to ensure safety for both customers and employees.

This new protocol is on top of the other measures the brand has put in place.


“The company’s guiding principle from the beginning has been to prioritize partner (employee) and customer safety, based on facts and science, and communicated with transparency,” the company said in a release.

After closing for several weeks, Starbucks announced it is reopening many of its shops by end of May. They still won’t have tables though, as orders will be for pick-up only.

This is one of many businesses that is asking customers to wear masks, including Whole Food and T&T Supermarket.
