Costco To Require Everyone To Wear Face Masks
Costco in Sioux Falls, like many Costco stores all over the world, has implemented practices and procedures to protect employees and patrons during the COVID-19 pandemic.
They have now announced on their website that “Effective Monday, May 4, most Costco locations and Costco gas stations will return to regular operating hours.”
Costco stated: “To protect our members and employees, effective 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 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.
Also effective Monday, May 4, select Costco warehouses are open from 9 a.m. to 10 a.m., Monday through Friday for members ages 60 and older, and people with disabilities. Only members who meet these criteria will be able to shop during these hours. Guests will not be admitted. The pharmacy will be open, but the Costco Food Court will be closed during these hours.
