Arizona grocery chain Fry's Food Stores will begin requiring workers to wear masks Monday — long after other grocery chains and retail establishments started mandating masks for their workers. 

Fry's parent company, Kroger, has also extended $2 per hour bonuses for all hourly staff to May 2.

As Kroger CEO Rodney McMullen explained in a video message on Twitter, the company is releasing its lessons learned to help other retailers implement safety programs in their stores.
