Face masks are expected to be on sale in Orange Woolworths stores by the end of the week and will be rolled out across all NSW stores from this week.
A Woolworths spokesperson said the response from Woolworths and the government's recommendation to wear face masks in store has been received well by team members and local community.
"We're pleased to see an increase in the number of customers choosing to wear masks during their shop," they said.
"Woolworths has taken a number of precautions to look after team members and customers."
In addition to wearing face masks, health ambassadors regularly wipe down trolleys and baskets, plastic barriers have been installed at checkouts, front of store hosts monitor social distancing around checkouts and hand sanitiser stations are available in each store.
