Kudos to Costco for quickly stepping up in the face of the Covid-19 pandemic.
Its reasoned response includes canceling product demonstrations, putting Plexiglass between employees and customers in the pharmacy and cashier stands, limiting the number of people who may enter the store at one time, sanitizing shopping carts, setting up entrance and exit tapes in produce and dairy rooms, putting floor decals six feet apart for carts waiting in line, wiping conveyor belts with sanitizer between customers, not touching customer credit cards or receipts, and notifying all members that they would begin requiring everyone to wear masks in the stores.
My husband and I have been members almost since their start of business as Price/Costco and have nothing but praise for their business ethics. Costco exhibits a sense of fair play.
Sure, wearing a mask when shopping is a nuisance. But as an elderly person susceptible to germs, I appreciate being reminded to protect myself as well as others from illness. It’s a small price to pay.
Hopefully, with cooperation we will all get through this period intact.
