With social distancing does going to Walmart for groceries count as breaking the rules about not staying home ?

You do what and when you Want.

No. You can go shopping. Stay clear of other people, maybe wear rubber gloves and a face mask. Wash hands when you get home.

People who go to places like that, who may stand in line for hours next to the person who stands behind them just don't care. They're going to buy whatever they can, even if it means them getting sick and dying. Big places like Walmart should be mandated to closed and you can only shop with them on line.

no. You're allowed out as long as its for essential items (like groceries)

Walmart is open only because people need food. It's considered an 'essential' service. Like gas stations, post offices and, in some places, liquor stores. If you weren't allowed to go there, the place would be locked up!
Just be careful! If you are following instructions about staying home, washing your hands, etc., that visit to Walmart is probably the most dangerous thing you're doing. You're more likely to pick up the virus there (or anywhere you go where there's people) than anywhere else.

It's not martial law, you can go shopping. Even under martial law you could go shopping, but there may be restrictions on how much you could buy.

When the choice is shopping or starving, no.

No provided you keep your distance and assure you disinfect anything you touch and yourself. Act like you have it and do not want to transmit it.

It depends where you are, and what your orders are. Most places allow you to go out to shop. Some states allow you to go out, but mandate that you must keep 6 feet distance. And some states have no restrictions yet.
