My wife and I took advantage of this "commendable effort" at one of our local grocery store this morning. Not only was the store relatively dark but the Deli Dept, Bakery Dept, Meat Counter, and Fish Counters were all closed. There were only 2 check out registers open which created two very long lines of elderly people clustered together during what was supposed to help create social distancing. All this did was create social gathering. Not quite sure how this was an advantage for the elderly!On a side note, most of the groceries around here are opening an hour early for seniors only. Commendable but most groceries don't stock overnight anymore. First thing in the morning a lot of things won't be available anyway. What worries me is that it's still dark here at 7am and a bunch of old folks would be easy parking lot pickings for scum.
I carry and always have an eye out but most don't. It's just a matter of time....
We are going to shop during regular hours from now on.
Be careful out there everyone,
