Do you think the government will eventually shut down grocery stores. My husband said they should shut down grocery stores too?

He said the only way this virus will stop is if grocery stores shut down. He was like “ people just gonna have to live off peanut butter sandwhiches for a while. People moving too much”

    Its really scary to try to do the groceries that way because you forget to bring what you were going for, I couldnt just browse the way I normally do, I head this girl coughing in the store while I was on the opposite end and quickly went to grab some napkins and toilet paper, I only took the essentials like milk, bread, cereal, beans, macaronni, and some ramen maruchan soups for my son. I told my son it was really risky out there its sad I have to go out there again to keep trying. Im not sure if they should close them just screen them at the door that way senior citizens can be safe at least.

    your husband is right, i have a hard time they will be willing to cause that level of unrest over the total lockdown/store closure. if the peak of the cases doesn't happen in april, i think you might see it by june though

    The US government would have to drive down the street and pass out flour and eggs, hahaha.

    The best answer is to look at Italy.  Full quarantine in the country and yet grocery stores are still alive and well.  Don't worry about that.  Just go shopping as early in the day as possible.

    I really don't think that is an option. As it is grocery stores are being very closely monitored, and are following the physical distancing policy pretty well.

    They cant. People need access to food. If they shut down stores theyll have to deliver food. How well do you think that will work

    No, there's no way that can happen, they simply can't do delivery only, even with shops open the delivery booking slots are all rammed for a few days, they'd never get to anyone on time.

    Sorry but your husband is over reacting. We

    Have too many business being shut down in

    Barely effected cities and states. We can't shut

    Down everything without destroying our entire

    Economy. We need to only close some business

    In heavily effected cities and states. Find ways

    To give people the things they need. ( Groceries

    And lots of other things are never shut down

    Goods and services. ) we need to focus more

    On keeping the economy going and prevent

    As many deaths as we can. But only a very

    Small percentage actually die from the corona

    Virus. So don't over react. We have a small

    Percentage of people wearing masks in our

    City with no reported virus cases so far. Oddly

    Most of them are black women with kids.
