Costco’s New Mask Policy Prompts Negative Reactions on Social Media

Costco’s new policy has prompted a backlash on social media. Costco announced last week, customers will not be allowed in Costco locations if they are not wearing a mask. This new policy too place starting May 4.

“To protect our members and employees, effective May 4, all Costco members and guests must wear a face covering that covers their mouth and nose at all times while at Costco,” said a statement on the website. “This requirement does not apply to children under the age of 2 or to individuals who are unable to wear a face covering due to a medical condition.”

This new rule is an effort to slow the spread of the novel coronavirus in Costco stores. It is also in correlation with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC)’s guidelines.

Costco’s statement added that wearing “face covering should not be seen as a substitute for social distancing. Please continue to observe rules regarding appropriate distancing while on Costco premises.”

People React

Social media users did not respond positively to Costco’s new rule.

“I will NOT wear a face mask in your store. Member for 7+ years, canceling today #boycottcostco,” said one Twitter user.

“Cancelling my Costco executive membership because I will not be told to wear a mask. #boycottcostco #Plandemic2020 #saynotocostco,” said another user.

Another user said, “dictating face mask for your workers is one thing but forcing this on your loyal members who paid for a membership is a complete abuse of power.”

On the other hand, some people showed support and said they approve of the masks.

“Thank you @Costco for making masks mandatory. Sure you’re going to lose some people, but you’re also going to gain some people too. I want to support businesses who care about their employees as well as their customers!!! #SupportCostco,” said one user.

    The people who think a mask will protect them from a virus are ignorant of the facts. This virus is much smaller than is the weave in these masks. Add in the people who keep adjusting and fiddling with their mask, and it’s much more of a threat wearing one. I refuse to participate in this farce. It’s like the TSA. Some people think they’re protected while flying, while the facts are TSA is a joke that does nothing but violate your constitutional rights under the 4th Amendment.
