GFCI for eat-in kitchen outets?

I have two foor-level outlets in my eat-in kitchen on their own 20 Amp circuit with no connection to the counter-level outlets. The outlet closest to the kitchen area is about 5 ft from the counter and about 8 ft from the sink. Do these need to be GFCI protected o?

No. Only those associated with the countertop, small appliance circuits, or an island in the kitchen will be required to have GFCI protection.
