The next time you make a Costco run, don’t expect to eat your way around the store. While the world is whipped into a frenzy over the coronavirus, Costco is temporarily suspending the offer of free samples.

Business Insider reports all stores in China and the United States are stopping the practice. 

Since the coronavirus is spread by way of infected bodily fluids from noses and mouths, it’s probably a good idea not to share food at this point in the game.
