Before you begin with your well worded policy of non-confrontation with those who do not want to wear a mask and the safety and security of your employees, just stop. The only reason that my husband and I went to Target instead of Walmart, is because my pregnant daughter wanted a specific item that you carry.
We were frequent shoppers before the pandemic, but after seeing the way Walmart enforced the mask requirement with personnel at the entrance, as well as extra staff and no hesitation to call the police for violations, we felt more secure shopping at their stores. On Wednesday, at the Gilbert and Germann Rd store in Chandler, this was confirmed. Your store manager had the sign posted, masks are required to shop here. Carts were being wiped down, sanitizer and masks were available for those without them.
Yet, as a public health professional and a registered nurse I have spent two days this week vaccinating hundreds of people who have been grateful, relieved and overjoyed to get the COVID-19 vaccine. In fact, aside from my daughters request for your Korean BBQ meal, we were also there to get another sympathy card, one more friend we had lost to this pandemic. What a gut-punch to see 3 people in a row walk past us in the card area talking on their phones, no mask, right past two Target employees. So I said, "Excuse me, masks are required to shop in here." The responses varied from, "I have a respiratory issue." from the young adult who was pushing a full cart while talking on her phone, oh the irony!
The adult male just kept walking stating, "It's a personal choice." So, would be leaders of Target? Is it a Personal Choice?
Do you agree that it is a personal choice to infect others?
I am posting this entire email on social media this afternoon and I would just like to know, what is your choice, do you lose the customers that value safety over self, or the customers that like Target because you understand their belief that "it's a personal choice"? -Do you choose to satisfy or safeguard your customers?
- If people truly have a respiratory condition, then they must use curbside pick-up, because you cannot run the risk of them being a carrier or even worse picking up enough of a viral load to become infected.
-If there respiratory condition is that bad, they are welcome to use a ECV or a manual wheelchair and an employee shopping assistant will push them and shop with them to allow them to wear a single face mask, as to not exert themselves and over-tax their breathing.
-Will you place employees at the entrance and not allow people into the store if they are not wearing facemasks?
-Can and will you enforce the safety measures that will decrease the number of cases of COVID-19?
