(KGTV) -- Costco is again adjusting store hours to accommodate seniors and other vulnerable groups.

The wholesale retailer’s Special Operating Hours are typically 9 a.m.-10 a.m., Monday-Friday. The timeframe applies to customers 60 years of age and older and those with disabilities or who are immunocompromised, store officials said.

However, citing the surge in COVID-19 cases across the country, Costco is moving its Special Operating Hours to 8 a.m.-9 a.m. at specific locations.

The following San Diego County locations will move its Special Operating Hours to 8 a.m.-9 a.m.:

  • Carmel Mountain
  • Mission Valley
  • Rancho Del Rey (H St., Chula Vista)

Costco was one of the first retailers to require masks in its stores.

Last month, Costco stopped allowing exemptions for mask-less shoppers citing medical conditions.
