Costco’s mask policy makes it safe for all to shop there

Thank you, Costco, for showing how much customers and employees are valued! The Costco policy requiring masks and social distancing proves they are a courageous and caring company.

It is by far the safest place to shop in our community. They have wisely chosen a sensible, intelligent path to public safety, employee safety, as well as business prosperity. As we all deal the tension between deadly infection and the crucial need for our economy to reopen, Costco is leading the way. Thank you.
