! I guess the requirement of a face mask means Costco thinks it is not safe to shop there. When no mask need be worn, then that will signal Costco thinks they are safe again and MAYBE, we'll come bac
I commend COSTCO for requiring customers and staff to wear face masks. It is better to be safe than be sorry. Doctors, heathcare workers and scientists have recommended the wearing of masks to reduce transmitting Covid-19. Other countries that have slowed and stopped the virus have insisted on the wearing of masks and it is good to see that COSTCO cares.,;,;,;,;,.,,..,.,.,.,
But did you know that none of the face mask worn, unless it's a particulate filter, do absolutely anything to prevent the virus? The particles are so small that they will flow right through your dumb masks fibers lol. Also the virus is not airborne, so there's that too. Don't be a sheep.
No, Anonymous.. the package of face masks that Costco gives out says quite clearly ' Warning: ..this (ear mask)product is not a respirator and will not provide any protection for Covid-19(Corona Virus) or other viruses..'
So go ahead and wear your silly mask: baa, baa!
Also, initially the CDC said it was not a good idea to wear masks...until they realized how much money people could make by selling them...then suddenly it's a great idea. The CDC started out by saying masks were a bad idea bc when you wear them you are touching your face more often and everything sticks to the mask. The masks people are wearing will protect from basically nothing...but it's been a great way for stores to make money on fabric and people to make money on etsy and ebay...
You are terribly misinformed. If someone with the virus coughs in your face, the droplets with the virus definitely are airborne,
There is research regarding aerosol transmission/airborne transmission of the virus. The research has come up that the virus can be transmitted in an airborne way from people just normally talking and breathing. It is an "aerosol" way the virus can also be transmitted. And asymptomatic people also (people who have the virus but have no symptoms and/or don't know they have the virus), when they talk or speak, can infect others, which is another reason they think the virus has so rapidly and widely spread as well. They are saying this "aerosol" way can travel 2 feet, but that also the 6 feet social distancing will take care of that as well. Masks are especially needed to be worn when you can not social distance, as well. Per the most prominent corona virus expert in Korea, Dr. Kim Woo-Ju, Professor, Infectious Diseases, since 1990, droplets can also come out when speaking, normally. We all spit even when we talk normally. A droplet is bigger than five microns. Air can also flow sideways as well. The droplets can travel, and dry out in the process. The size of the droplet shrinks to less than five microns. And it turns into aerosol. Aerosol transmission. Or airborne transmission.
Dr. Woo-Ju is looking after and taking care of patients with COVID-19 who come to Koreo University Guro Hospital in Seoul. He's the most senior member of their staff. During Dr. Woo-Ju's 30 year career, he's dealt with SARS (2013), Ebola (2014), MERS (2015), Swine Flu (2009 flu pandemic), tuberculosis, AIDS, measles, etc.
A mask, regardless of filter, is better than nothing at all. And masks protect people both ways. It's a team effort. Especially even for people who may be at high risk, that if they contract covid, they have little to none on chances of surviving it. People like that, too, don't want to die, because others are not being responsible and caring, by wearing masks.
Please give the names of these Dr.s, healthcare workers and scientists. So we can all benefit from their knowledge.
I DEFINATELY AGREE! MASKS PROTECT EVERYONE BOTH WAYS! ITS A TEAM EFFORT! ESPECIALLY EVEN FOR PEOPLE WHO MAY BE AT HIGH RISK, THAT IF THEY CONTRACT COVID, THEY HAVE LITTLE TO NONE ON CHANCES OF SURVIVING IT! PEOPLE LIKE THAT DON'T WANT TO DIE, BECAUSE OTHERS ARE NOT BEING RESPONSIBLE AND CARING BY WEARING MASKS!
If you scared, you wear one or stay home away from public
Go ahead and breathe your own carbon dioxide and while in this heat and humidity. Not good for you. Face coverings don't do anything, unless it is an approved mask for such items. You need to educate yourself before preaching mask wearing

oms that so many died for in America??? Unbelievable. Stop with the fear. Be responsible. Don't go out if you are sick, but COSTCO is wrong to "mandate" masks, and can suggest people do so l., ., ., .,. .., ,
You are apparently unaware of the fact that COVID-19 is being spread by people who are asymptomatic. The safest and respectful thing we can do is wear a mask when we go out. It's a very small ask, especially as things open up more. A VERY SMALL ASK TO SAVE LIVES.
Amen! Use your heads people!
d Diabetic Nurse. I serve the NHS for 43 years and the NHS destroyed my mobility.
I recently phoned the head office and I spoke to a lady who told me that she doesn't get priority despite being in a wheel chair and she doesn't see why anyone should be given priority? Lady you are in a wheel chair for god's sake. I am not in a wheel chair by choice. I cannot stand for more than a couple of minutes. I wish to maintain my independence with a little help from the public where the majority are ve,,m,m ,m , , ,
re both the same size, same color chewable pill. How does one differentiate from the other in a pill box. I was really upset when I noticed this.What happens if I mistakenly take one during the day and fall asleep at the wheel.
I am writing this because I'm presently in isolation and cannot go back to my Costco and return it and complain in person. This product should change their shape, color or size.
I called the company and they didn't seem to think that this was a problem. They said that the main ingredient was on.,., ., ., .,
Thank you for not shopping at Costco if you do not want to wear a mask. You are the reason why the rest of us are not safe. I am proud of my children and granddaughter because they do wear masks when they are not home. They respect the need for everyone's safety right now.
Thank You! Most educated people get it! A face could save lives. If you're so "special" that during a pandemic you can't understand the simple science of virus spread then by all means don't shop. Those of us who have jobs providing essential services to our communities will appreciate you keeping your ignorant butt home.
WAKE UP THERE WAS NEVER A PANDEMIC BUT A PLANDEMIC AND YOU ALONG WITH OTHERS WERE SUCKED INTO IT PATHETIC SHEEP
Anonymous is 100% correct. I can only suspect that those who are going along with this politically orchestrated non-crisis rely on mainstream news such as CNN and are unaware of the intentions of many of our politicians. For those people, I suggest that you "Trust but verify". If you do your own research, as I have, you can only conclude this virus should have never been stirred up to seem like a crisis when it's not. Please require that President Trump show us the process they went through, including charts and graphs of the options they looked at before choosing the radical move of shutting down a world economy over something that could have been much better managed by instituting "The Buddy System" for those 60+ and/or for those with one of the three pre-existing conditions putting them at high risk. The chosen strategy is one that should never have been on the table because it is a version of paying ransom to terrorists. Even if they weren't involved this time, they now know we will pay upwards of $5 trillion+ if they can simply release a new virus in major cities. I don't know if we can rebound from this foolish move. But just one more repeat of this amateur move and we would certainly be brought to our knees as we would "implode" our financial system and not able to afford to feed and house those who will lose their jobs and close their businesses. I voted for Trump. But I do not give "a pass" to a person, party, or well meaning fellow Americans who continue to fall in line despite what dangers history has shown us may lie ahead for doing so. I wish we all would hold them accountable for each decision and require they verify that they are telling us the truth. Each elected official should be only as good as their last decision no matter if we voted for them. First, you trust their interpretation without learning how they came upon their conclusions? Second, you stop earning a paycheck because they tell you to do so? Third, you wear a ridiculous face mask and keep a distance from others and even put yourself under house arrest? BTW, I am not certain of all the goals that the enemies from within have in mind with this fake crisis, but there are two things I believe are for certain. One, the mask is an experiment how willing people will be when they tell us that we must have a chip put into our hand the size of a grain of rice if we want to purchase food. Second, is to implode America so that the enemies from within can bring this once great country to its knees and reboot it as a one world economy so everyone can live at the same standard of living. That is a fallacy. It cannot be done and few of us would want it done because Americans would need to drop our standard of living for the third world countries to rise to an equal level. We cannot live at the same standard of living throughout this world and nor can we be ruled under one Constitution or one leader. If you are willing to go along with all that they request, will you do as the Jewish people did when the Germans told them to step into the showers and get clean? Will you trust the water is safe or will you check it first to make sure it isn't gas like it was for those gentile law abiding citizens who fell in line just as many of my fellow Americans are doing during this politically motivated non-crisis? Please, my friends, "trust but verify". Require that they prove to us they looked at all options. We need to see the facts. We must not consider this as an option again because we cannot live through it financially a second time. This one was such a blunder that it all by itself may bring us to our knees and lay us at the mercy of the enemies from within and the enemies abroad. May God help us all. "Trust but verify, please."

Good rant! I liked it.
TELL IT TO THE DEAD & DIEING...
READ THE STATS.... QUIT DRINKING THE TRUMP COOL-AID
DEAD OR FINANCIALLY SOUND...??? WHICH DO YOU PREFER???
Rather than assume that you are one of these "most educated" . Please give us an example of who you are listening to? Names and qualifications such as: Dr. Judy Mikovits MIT virologist and biochemist. When they ban them from media and try to debunk their findings you know that you have an inroad into the truth.
I agree with you! There is so much misinformation happening now and it's sad that not everyone understands this danger! Face masks are a small thing to try to keep others safe.
AMEN.....THANK YOU COSTCO!!
You should use your brain and do some research to find out why using masks by healthy people is extremely unhealthy. I will not shop at Costco until they realize that people in America are supposed to have freedom of choice.
That is great news. Stay home.
