Costco updating coronavirus mask policy to require shoppers with medical conditions to wear face shields
Costco Wholesale Club, one of the first retailers to mandate shoppers wear masks amid the COVID-19 pandemic, is updating its face mask policy Nov. 16.
Starting Monday, Nov. 16, the wholesale club says it will require all members, guests and employees to wear a face mask or face shield with the exception of children under 2.
"Members and guests must wear a face mask that covers their mouth and nose at all times," Costco said on its COVID-19 updates page. "Individuals who are unable to wear a face mask due to a medical condition must wear a face shield. ... Entry to Costco will be granted only to those wearing a face mask or face shield."
