US Costco require customers to wear face masks (Canada recommends masks May 21) Guelph-mandatory June 12

Looks like Costco USA, maybe Canada as well will require customers to wear face mask starting May 4th.

Maybe someone can confirm if this is for Canadian locations as well.

Anyone in Guelph Costco will have to wear a mask according to this on Friday June 12th.

Why speculate, just check Costco's website. It has all of their Covid-19 updates. You should remove Canada from the title until or if they add this requirement here.

If Costco sells facemasks, I would use it when I shop there.

I'd settle for one with a big costco logo or fake smile on the front. :-)

According to my Costco source, Canada will also require face coverings as of Monday May the 4th. It doesn't need to be an actual mask though. Things like scarves are ok too.

Great news!

Hopefully, this will shorten the lineups as I still see one quarter to one third of customers still without even a surgical mask.

Looks like I won't be going to Costco anymore. Facemasks annoy me so much when I wear them that I can't help but "adjust" them constantly. Since touching your mask once defeats the whole purpose of the mask (because your mask becomes contaminated the minute you put it on), I'm more of a danger with the mask on than without one.

Awesome news!

Now to take away the memberships of those that don't social distance 6.5 feet and we'd have a perfect shopping experience.

Same, I have a very sensitive nose, I tried wearing many different face masks but every few minutes my nose would start to itch. It definitely wouldn't work for me
😎Thanks RFD😎
