Statement on confirming illnesses
The health and well-being of our customers, associates and communities are our top priority. Like other essential service providers, we have seen our own associates and their families personally impacted by COVID-19. Because the testing and reporting of cases by health departments varies by state, Publix cannot fully and accurately report cases in real time. We have been and continue to be focused on intensive, ongoing protective measures in all our facilities.
Statement on gloves and masks
While we continue to follow the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC) guidance, we also value our associates' personal comfort and as a result, have decided to allow those in select job classes who are not normally required to wear gloves and masks the option to wear this personal protective equipment (PPE) for the duration of this national emergency.
