If you’re going shopping in the Lake area, you’ll likely need a mask.

A number of stores are now making their own mask requirements, despite the fact the city nor the state have such an ordinance in place.

Those stores include Menards, Wal-Mart, Gerbes, Dollar Tree, Kohls, American Eagle and Starbucks.

Other stores with new mask mandates include Kroger, Best Buy, Costco and Sam’s Club.

Currently the only cities that require masks to be worn in Missouri are St. Louis, Kansas City, Columbia and Springfield.
