Costco Shoppers Will Need to Wear Masks Starting Next Week
If you've been to the grocery store over the last few weeks, you've probably noticed more and more people wearing masks or face coverings. A lot of stores are requiring employees to wear masks while they work, and now Costco is taking the next step - starting next week, all Costco customers will be required to wear a face mask or covering while they're in the store.
This is a move that I'd guess a lot of other chains will soon start to follow - the chance of spreading COVID-19 and other diseases is smaller if everyone in the store is wearing a mask. The rule doesn't apply to children that are 2 years old or younger, or to people with a medical condition that prevents them from wearing one.
Have you been wearing a mask while you shop? I have been, and it's a weird feeling at first, but the more you do it, the more you get used to it. Costco's policy goes into effect on Monday, May 4th.
