Federal officials and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) go even further, recommending Americans not to gather in groups of more than 10 people, schooling be done at home and discretionary travel and social visits be avoided.
While these changes have been difficult for many of our residents, some local business are working to assist our most vulnerable neighbors. Supermarket chain Stop and Shop announced today all of its “stores will open earlier in order to service only customers who are age 60 and over from 6:00a.m.-7:30a.m. daily” beginning Thursday, March 19th.
Other area businesses may be doing the same or expanding previously underused delivery options. Call your favorite local shops and restaurants to see!
