Get to the front of the line.
On April 8, 2020 Costco Canada implemented a new policy that allows healthcare workers and first responders priority shopping access.
All Healthcare workers, police officers, firefighters EMTs should simply present their Costco membership card and a piece of official identification indicating their role and they will be allowed to move to the front of the line to enter the warehouse and shop.
Costco Canada has also implemented social distancing practices on April 3, 2020 in their warehouses and increased their sanitizing protocols for shopping cart handles, shelves, front-end belts, registers and other surfaces.
As well on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays from 8-9 AM, Costco is offering special operating hours for members who are 60 or older or who have a physical disability.
