Boise Costco to Start Requiring Members to Wear Masks
Scrolling through social media, it appears this is something that a significant amount of you seem to agree with.
While wearing cloth face coverings in situations where it's difficult to maintain proper social distancing (like grocery shopping) the CDC actively recommends wearing a cloth face covering to slow the spread of COVID-19. At this time, there's no order requiring Idahoans to comply with the recommendation but some stores are putting the policy in place if you plan to shop with them.
A photo of a sign reading "Effective 5/4/20: All Members, Guests and Employees Must Wear Face Coverings. Members without face coverings will not be permitted inside the warehouse. We appreciate your cooperation" popped up in the Boise Bench Dwellers group this afternoon.
It was difficult to determine if the photo was taken inside a local, warehouse so I reached out to a friend of mine who works at the Boise location. She confirmed that they did put the sign-up this morning and the new policy will begin on Monday.
She also shared that they'll be resuming their regular hours the same day.
BTW, if this stresses you out because you're not crafty and don't know here to get a mask. Our friends at Bella Family Healthcare, Meridian Advance Psychiatry and Morgan Family Medicine are offering free masks to anyone who needs one while supplies last. Don't panic. They've got you!
