Well, folks, things have started slowing down a little at the grocery store. We had strict limits on TP and bottled water. Today we took the limit off the bottled water. YAY!
Early in the morning it was busy today, but as the day progressed it evened out and slowed down. The shelves that were staying emptied out stayed stocked pretty well. Except for the TP. lol
We did implement some procedures to keep us, and our customers, at a safe distance from each other. Some of the customers didn't like it, but we are trying to protect both them and ourselves.
Our county issued a stay at home order starting today at 6pm, lasting till April 3.
I checked on a couple of neighbors who can't get out to shop. I work up there, so it's no trouble for me to pick up a few things for them. It was good to see their smiling faces and know that they are okay.
All in all, things are going very well. The initial panic seems to have subsided, and spirits are high among my coworkers and I.
Of course, there is much more to all of this than just the grocery store. Our entire Mall has shut down, leaving many people (including my grand daughter) out of work. My SIL was sent home from work yesterday. There aren't enough orders coming in, and we don't know when he'll go back to work.
I recognize the gravity of this unprecedented global upheaval. Many are without work. Or exposed to the virus and waiting to see what will come of it.
All of us ( in the human race) have great reason for concern.
I hope and pray that each of you are well.
Sending virtual hugs.....
