Costco is now requiring all members and employees to wear face coverings as coronavirus cases rise.

According to their website, beginning May 4, all Costco members and guests must wear a mask or face covering that covers the mouth and nose at all times while at Costco.

This requirement does not apply to children under the age of 2 or to individuals who are cannot wear face covering due to a medical condition.

Costco says the use of face masks is not to be used as a substitute for social distancing.

Earlier this month, Costco said it would only allow two people to enter its warehouses with a single membership card. Typically, Costco allows members to bring two guests with them to their stores.
