Oklahoma City-based Love’s Travel Stops announced that as of July 29, the company will require its customers to wear face coverings or masks because of the COVID-19 pandemic.
The decision will apply to every Love’s Travel Stop, Love’s Country Store, Love’s Truck Care and Speedco location across the U.S. The company has 540 stores in 41 states.


“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.

Love’s is continuing to prioritize the health and safety of customers and team members by performing vigorous and frequent cleaning and disinfecting measures, practicing social distancing and requiring all team members to wear face coverings.
