Starting May 4, all Costco shoppers will be required to wear a mask in-store, the chain announced on its website on Wednesday.

The big-box retailer said that “all Costco members and guests must wear a mask or face covering that covers the mouth and nose at all times while at Costco.” The mandate will not be a “substitute for social distancing” the store said.

Children under the age of 2 and individuals who are unable to wear a mask or face covering due to a medical condition are exempt from the requirement.

Earlier this month, Costco announced that they would be limiting the number of people in the store.

The announcement also included updated shopping hours for customers 60 years and older. Those hours were expanded from three days a week to five days a week. Allowing high-risk customers to shop on Monday through Friday between 9am and 10am.

Limits on certain items are still in place to help ensure more members are able to purchase merchandise they want and need.

The Rockwall Costco is located at 1225 TX-276.
