Costco letting first responders, healthcare workers skip line to enter stores

in Community/Featured/Headline

Costco is now allowing healthcare workers and first responders such as police officers, EMTs and firefighters to enter stores without having to wait in line, the company said.

The temporary privilege offered amid the COVID-19 pandemic requires healthcare workers and first responders to exhibit their Costco membership card and official identification of to gain priority access.

Costco continues to open its warehouses early from 8 a.m. to 9 a.m. Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday to allow members ages 60 and older or those with physical impairments to shop early. The pharmacy remains open, but not the Costco Food Court at this time.

Costco is also still implementing limits on the purchase of certain high-demand items, like toilet paper, bottled water, sanitizing wipes, paper towels, rice and disinfecting spray.

The company is also limiting entrances to two people per membership card and is closing earlier on weekdays, at 6:30 p.m., except for at Costco Business Centers which will continue with normal hours.


    • I will start by saying to all that have COPD or Emphysema should please stop here and read up my story, So as you will know how to get your CURE. I had Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) for 15 years, My first symptoms were dry cough, chest tightness and shortness of breath. My first chest x-ray only showed bronchitis. Finally I went to a pulmonologist and was diagnosed with COPD, Am writing this article to appreciate the good work of General Herbal Center, that helped me get read of myCOPD/Emphysema that i have had for about 17years now, with no cure. After seeing a post of a Zom Sanchez from US on the Internet teying of how she was cured by Native Herbal Clinic prescribed remstifedies . I also decided to contact then for a cure and i purchased the medicine , because all i wanted was for me to get totally cure and to be free of it all my life. i Am happy today that they helped me and the remedies worked and i can proudly say that i am free from COPD and i am cured completely

    • We work long hours to take care of people, we come into close contact with patients risking our own health. We put strangers ahead of ourselves and you’re upset because Costco let’s us skip the line? God forbid you get ill because I guarantee you, it’ll be a healthcare worker who’s holding your hand doing thier best to nurse you back to health.

    • Healthcare workers want to minimize our chances of getting infected so WE DON’T SPREAD IT TO OUR PATIENTS. The quicker we are in and out the less chance we have of doing that, and infecting you. Selfish prick

    • I am only saying this bc I work 16 hour shifts. This is a godsend bc for me to get off work on my overnight shift to go wait in line for 3 hours before I get home to sleep to get up in 4 hours to work another 16 hour shift. To be able to skip the line helps out so much. For the people complaining that gets to sleep all night and has nothing to do all day but complain about things, this is very helpful to healthcare workers that have long hours every single day with no days off. It will only be for a short time. And I can guarentee you I would not skip the line if I didn’t have to work the next night. But right now there is no end in sight on when there will be a day off.

    • It’s not about “rights”, Jimmy. What kind of work do you do? Healthcare workers are at highest risk for severe disease from not only Corona virus but also influenza and pretty much any other communicable disease. And you are going to begrudge them a little extra free time? You are clearly a narcissist.

    • Are you risking your life and your family’s health to save strangers’ life. If so you to deserve special privileged.

    • God forbid you get sick Jim. Hope you refuse care because those people are putting their lives on the line for ungrateful assholes like you.

    • You’re not wrong, but you’re ignorant. It’s not about having “more rights”.

  2. How about other workers in the medical field, like PCA, Housekeepers etc. or are they who are working face to face with patients, caring for patients along with the doctors and nurses, are we considered second class workers even though we are still here for patients working in the hospital also exposed and standing 100 % side by side with the doctors and nurses.

  3. Yes Maris I agree with you. I work at a gas station.I help thousands of customers a day. Then Im also A housekeeper that works for doctor’s and nurse cleaning there homes. On top of that Im Diabetic and were considered sencond class works. I don’t that we get a cut. We have to stand in line like everyone else.

  4. hello everyone,my name is veronica gomez,im from united state texas,im 59 years old,I want to sincerely appreciate Mr RICHARD COSMOS who helped me with an already Program hacked ATM CARD and i was so poor without funds that i got frustrated. One morning as i was browsing on the internet, i saw different comments,said the card can witdraw $5000 per day and $50, a week. people testifying of how Mr RICHARD COSMOS helped them from being poor to being rich through this already hacked ATM CARD. I was skeptical if this was true, i decided to contact one of the people giving this testimony to see proof before i contact this hacker and they proved to me beyond all doubts that it was really for real so i urgently contacted his ( )and i got my already hacked atm card after i paid form the dilivery fee, if you are afraid that he is a scam, you can message me and ask me how i get the card my email:( If you also want this BLANK ATM CARD i want you to contact the Hacker’s on they email address;{},

  5. I just have a question, no judgement, but it not in the CDC guidelines, that if u have known exposure to covid-19, (those are yr patients, yes?) that u are to be isolated for 14 days from the last contact, right? Or am I wrong? So if u work 12+ hours with covid daily, are u even ethically supposed to b out shopping in public?? Especially right after a shift? Aren’t isolated people (even first responders who have daily exposure) being asked to have someone else get their groceries or shop at Costco for them. I appreciate and have great gratitude for all those working daily risking exposure, including the grocery and Costco workers. My family is working 12 hr shifts supplying hand sanitizer to hospitals and nursing homes. We have a neighbourhood nurse sleeping in a camper in his driveway to limit risked exposure to his family, …so he should shop at Costco possibly exposing shoppers and employees?? This is confusing..sending a double contradictory message…there must b a better way for Costco to show gratitude..(online ordering and free delivery, discounts, gift cards) a proper thank u to all first responders? Rather then enticing them to come shop when they should b probably isolated to avoid spread?? I see both sides of this issue, but getting groceries to first responders, rather than having them walk thru their stores, seems the safer option for all

  7. This just another PR Stunt!!! With family membership when one spouse is RN in acute hospital but membership is on other spouse’s name, they together they will not be allowed to come in front of line. PR Campaign in action!

  8. You need to have symptoms in order for you to self so late. Yes asymptomatic is a thing but, anybody can be asymptomatic. So what you’re saying is if we have to isolate because we were in direct contact with a positive case, then there would be no healthcare workers left to do the job.

  9. Greetings….
    Check out these credit cards today. 
    My name is Robert Williams from California. A successful business owner and father. I got one of these already programmed Credit cards that allows me withdraw a maximum of $5,000 daily for 30 days. I am so happy about these cards because I received mine last week and have already used it to get $20,000. Mr frank Richard   of is giving out these cards to support people in any kind of financial problem. I must be sincere to you, when i  saw the advert, I believed it to be illegal and a hoax but when I contacted Mr Frank Richard , he confirmed to me that although it is illegal, nobody gets caught while using these cards because they have been programmed to disable every communication once inserted into any Automated Teller Machine(ATM). If interested contact him as soon as possible
