Costco has seen a “surge” in demand for certain stores products during the coronavirus outbreak. The wholesale retailer has worked to limit the number of customers in its stores at any one time and is asking all consumers and employees to practice social distancing.

The company has reduced some its services and implemented limits on certain high-demand items to ensure that more consumers are able to have these essentials, it said.
