Love’s joins growing list of retailers requiring customer face coverings

Step up to help stop the spread of COVID-19

OKLAHOMA CITY, July 21, 2020 - Beginning July 29, Love's Travel Stops will require customers to wear face coverings at every Love's Travel Stop, Love's Country Store, Love's Truck Care, Love's-owned hotel and Speedco location across the country. The new requirement is intended to help protect customers, team members and local communities from the spread of COVID-19.

"We are joining other retailers by implementing a face covering policy for customers, and will continue to follow the guidance of health officials and adjust our practices to help keep our customers and team members safe," said Shane Wharton, president of Love's. "We want to thank our customers who continue to adapt to these protective measures implemented at Love's."

According to the CDC, face coverings help decrease the spread of COVID-19. Customers who don't have their own face mask or covering can purchase them at Love's.
