Several stores and shopping centers are updating their masking policies for customers and employees due to new recommendations by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention for vaccinated individuals. Below is a list of the businesses in alphabetical order and their new policies.

Aventura Mall recommends, but does not require, guests continue to wear masks and observe social distancing while inside the mall’s common areas. Our stores and restaurants have their own policies regarding masks and we ask our guests to follow those policies. For more information, click here.

Costco

In Costco locations where the state or local jurisdiction does not have a mask mandate, we will allow members and guests who are fully vaccinated to enter Costco without a face mask or face shield. We will not require proof of vaccination, but we ask for members’ responsible and respectful cooperation with this revised policy. Face coverings will still be required in healthcare settings, including Pharmacy, Optical, Hearing Aid. Costco continues to recommend that all members and guests, especially those who are at higher risk, wear a mask or shield. For more information, click here.
