Costco introducing new face covering policy

Costco introducing new face covering policy”

No, Costco is not requiring those customers to wear a face mask to enter their stores.

Before this announcement, masks were recommended but not required in Costco stores, clarified CEO Craig Jelinek in a November 10 news release.

Costco had previously allowed a medical exemption to the mask mandate it imposed in May, but the company reversed course amid a record-setting surge in coronavirus infections across the US. Children under the age of two are exempt.

Costco's new policy calls for all members, guests and employees to wear masks or face shields - including those with medical conditions.

Costco was one of the first retailers to enact a mandatory mask policy in early May, however the initial requirement excluded members who claim to have a medical condition that prevents them from wearing a face covering.

In a letter to members, President and CEO Craig Jelinek said that although some might see the updated policy may be inconvenient, its shoppers' safety is worth the inconvenience. We won't censor or delete comments unless they contain off-topic statements or links, unnecessary vulgarity, false facts, spam or obviously fake profiles. "Thank you for your understanding and cooperation".

"Members and guests must wear a face mask that covers their mouth and nose at all times".

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends that masks be worn in public places where social distancing is not acceptable.
