Costco Sends Healthcare Workers and First Responders to the Front of the Line

Posted By on Thu, Apr 9, 2020 at 2:39 PM

If you've made an essential trip to Costco lately (hopefully not to hoard toilet paper — seriously), it's been a very different experience. Shoppers, who are asked to follow social distancing protocols, are limited to two people per membership card, hours have been cut back and shopping is restricted to those 60 and older only from 8 to 9 a.m on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays. Now the warehouse has announced healthcare workers and first responders can skip to the front of the line.

On its website, the chain announced it's "temporarily allowing priority access to our warehouses during all open hours for Costco members who are healthcare workers and first responders such as police officers, EMTs and firefighters. Healthcare workers and first responders who present a Costco membership card and official identification of their role, will be allowed to move to the front of any line to enter the warehouse."
