Hugh: Costco Stores in Canada Now Recommending Customers Wear Masks
In a posting on the Costco Canada website titled “Face Mask Requirement”, the company is asking customers to wear masks or face coverings in the store. The post reads:
“Public health experts recommend the use of masks or face coverings in public settings. To protect our members and employees, it is recommended that all Costco members and guests wear a mask or face covering that covers the mouth and nose, at all times while on Costco premises. This recommendation does not apply to children under the age of 2 or to individuals who are unable to wear a mask or face covering due to a medical condition. The use of a mask or face covering should not be seen as a substitute for social distancing. Please continue to observe rules regarding appropriate distancing while on Costco premises. Thank you for your understanding and cooperation.”
Costco shoppers in the United States have been required to wear masks since April.
