Costco Requires ALL Shoppers To Wear Face Covering, No Exceptions
Costco has made the announcement that all shoppers must wear a face covering in their store or they will not be allowed into the store. There are no longer exceptions for people with medical conditions.
If a person has a medical condition preventing them from wearing a face mask, they will require those people to wear a face shield instead. The updated policy can be read here along with the statement from the CEO of Costco. Children under the age of 2 will not be required to wear a mask.
Costco stated they are "committed to helping protect the health and safety of our members and employees and to serving our communities. [Costco] is closely monitoring the changing situation and complying with Public Health Guidance."
Costco has also re-implemented product limits on certain items like toilet paper, cleaning supplies and more. Reusable shopping bags are allowed except for locations where local mandates prevent it from happening.
I feel like the biggest news here is again that all people in Costco are required to wear a mask or face covering no matter what medical conditions they may have or they will not be permitted into the store.
I am unsure how many people have canceled memberships do to Costco's mask mandates, the original mandate has been in effect for a while now, they are just cracking down harder on the requirements.
