Costco Suspends Its Free Samples Due to Coronavirus Concerns

Another favourite has taken a hit due to coronavirus concerns.

Costco locations in Winnipeg are no longer handing out FREE samples as a hygiene measure to stop the potential spread of novel coronavirus. As with all other coronavirus suspensions, this is expected to be a temporary measure and samples should come back eventually.

Staff at Costco whose job is to provide samples will not lose employment. They have been temporarily reassigned to perform other duties such as stocking shelves.
