Some grocery store chains across the U.S. are beginning to offer special shopping hours dedicated to older adults who are among the most vulnerable to severe complications from COVID-19. As the practice of social distancing becomes the norm, the special hours at supermarkets can further limit coronavirus exposure for older shoppers who choose to venture out, as well as for shoppers with underlying health conditions that put them more at risk of infection.
Current coronavirus guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the White House urges older adults to stay home, stay away from other people and avoid discretionary trips. Explore alternatives to shopping in stores, such as ordering groceries online for delivery or asking a friend or family member to do your shopping for you.
