I’m limiting my visits to public places as much as possible, but I was running low on groceries and had to go to Costco. During my trip, a couple of things took me by surprise and so I thought I’d share them here in my Costco Coronavirus Update. I hope posting this info will help you be more prepared for your next trip to Costco. Your local Costco might not have the same policies, but it probably won’t be much different either.
2 Member Limit
My local Costco was only allowing 2 people in, per membership. TOTALLY UNOFFICAL, but a Costco employee mentioned that it might not be long before Costco only allows one person in, per membership. I continue to see a number of families in the store and so to avoid being turned away, I thought I’d mention it. Costco is trying to keep everyone safe via Social Distancing, leading me into my next point…
Costco is only allowing a certain number of people in the store at a time. Yesterday, I actually had to wait outside for about 45 minutes. Not a big deal, but it was -15 degrees celsius with the windchill. (I’m in Calgary, Canada.) I was dressed properly, but I wasn’t expecting such a long line. Perhaps had I gone earlier or later in the day, I would have had less of a wait… Then again, the Costco in my area is often busy.
