There’s a new policy coming to Costco!
Like many retailers, Costco has been making some adjustments to its policies in response to the coronavirus crisis.
The warehouse club has suspended its popular food samples, prohibited the return of certain items, made special accommodations for shoppers ages 60 and older, and started allowing no more than two people to enter the warehouse for each membership card.
Costco just announced yet another change that will temporarily allow priority access to its warehouses for Costco members who are healthcare workers and first responders such as police officers, EMTs, and firefighters. Healthcare workers and first responders who show a Costco membership card and official ID showing their professional role will be allowed to move to the front of the line to enter the warehouse.
This new policy was announced on the Costco Facebook page along with an update that was shared on the company’s Coronavirus Response Page. Although this change is temporary, there has been no end date set and it is expected to continue for as long as social distancing recommendations are in place.
