Updated september 9, 2020

Costco is firmly committed to helping protect the health and safety of our members and employees, and to serving our communities. We are closely monitoring the changing situation, and complying with Public Health guidance.

A Message From Our CEO

Priority Access for Healthcare Workers and First Responders

  • Costco is temporarily allowing priority access to our warehouses for Costco members who are healthcare workers and first responders such as police officers, EMTs and firefighters. Healthcare workers (which include Pharmacists and all hospital employees with a hospital ID) 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.

Face Coverings

  • Some provinces/territories and local jurisdictions require the use of face coverings in public settings. Costco will adhere to those requirements. Please follow your local by-laws and guidelines.

  • Costco Wholesale Warehouses:
    • 9:00am - 8:30pm Monday to Friday
