Costco Introduces a Stricter Face Coverings Policy

Costco introduces Face Shield Requirement for Medical Exemptions

The retail giant, Costco, has reported a change in its policy regarding face masks and medical exemptions used by its members.

The President and CEO of Costco revealed the rising number of COVID-19 cases across the U.S. has forced the company to introduce a new policy requiring a face shield to be worn by those medically exempt from wearing a facemask.
