Costco is going to continue providing supplies during the coronavirus outbreak, but the store announced one major change. According to Fox News, Costco is going to limit the number of people allowed in at one time. Their goal is to cut down on panic buying and unruly behavior.

Costco released this statement explaining what else they're doing: ''We've increased our protocols in sanitizing surfaces, including shopping cart handles, merchandise shelves, front-end belts, and registers. Limits have been implemented on certain items to help ensure more members are able to access the merchandise they want and need. Our buyers and suppliers are working to ensure in-demand merchandise as well as everyday favorites are available in our warehouses.''
