Anyone going to boycott Costco and ditch their membership?

Why? I haven't gone in two months because of lines. I can skip another two months until they stop requiring masks. Or costco.com. Or go and wear my CM-6M and see how they like me now.

Have to wear a mask to enter a place of business, unable to make the personal choice of not being able to choose between wearing one or not if you want to visit the business.

I don't like mandatory anything but I admit I am having waaay too much fun rolling into places with a red bandana over my face. Hope it keeps up for awhile, do all the mean things to facial recognition systems while masks are required.

True, but is Costco reacting because some of their locations are in mandatory mask states, so corporate went company wide because they could? On the other hand, you are open and serving the public, so why would you require a "dress code" for everyone.

The mask requirement is just a way to rub our noses in the doo doo. Purely a power trip.
 The homemade poorly worn contraptions people are walking around with are ridiculous.
 They must think a virus is the size of a grain of sugar.

 IN a weird way though, I can't wait to write all over a nice white N95.  "INFECTED!" "NUKE CHINA!"
 "SOCIAL CONTROL!"  endless list of possibilities.

Company wide seems to be their modus operandi.  I recall the gun policy even says something to the effect that they didn't care about state or local laws when they made that policy, because it was about making their customers and employees "safe". Still, I've printed, flashed, etc. numerous times, and employees and customers had to have seen the gun, but no one ever says anything here, so local employees may not always agree with the policy.

I doubt there will be leeway with the masks though. Still, I can't help but think it's Costco Seattle-centric social theater at this point. As with any other mask wearing, IMO, it would have had more meaning and positive effect as a mandatory policy two months ago.

Also, if Costco wanted to put their money where their mouth is, they would be offering free sealed and sterile masks at the door for their customers who show up without one versus turning away irate customers who show up without knowing the mask policy is in effect.

Working on it! 

I'll get actual pics of mine when I finish it.  Right now it's just a giant front heavy mask thing.  I plan to gut a chainsaw hardhat/face shield combo and attach the plague mask to it, and then cover all the support bits in leather.  For the rest,  I've been going to renn faires forever,  I've got a few ideas   cool

Awesome. Good for him.

A year or so ago, we had a couple of weirdos show up at church wearing masks and veils. Creepy, but we didn't call the cops or throw them out or anything.

It's just great how a guy wearing a dress and makeup is a hero, and there's something wrong with you if you don't like it; but dress up as a clown or a plague doctor, and the police respond.

We've had one of those brave heroes at church, too.

False dichotomy. "Open to the public" does not mean what some people seem to think it means. We've discussed this before.

Unless they run a store, apparently.

charby, do you really think Costco requiring masks in their store is the same thing as government requiring masks everywhere? I mean, as far as your individual rights are concerned?

BS.  Freedom of association means skipping Costco until they ditch the mask rule, if one is so inclined.  No rights are violated.
