(KERO) — Due to a surge in COVID-19 cases, Costco is continuing special shopping hours for seniors and other vulnerable groups. Those hours are 9 a.m. to 10 a.m. Monday through Friday.
Costco was one of the first retailers to require masks in its stores.
Last month the retailer updated its policy to no longer make exemptions for mask-less shoppers citing medical conditions. But children under two do continue to be exempt from wearing a face-covering with this updated policy.
