I have to add, Amazon has been out of a few items for the last two weekends so this weekend we tried Ralph's curbside pickup on their mobile app for the first time. You lose some points for convenience because you do have to drive to Ralph's but since you stay in your car the whole time it feels equally safe COVID-wise. There was a lot less waste and they had the items Amazon hasn't had in stock! Just another option/alternative during these socially distant times.

I just wore my protective gear and went to Costco last week.  ;)
(Shield, mask, gloves)

Oh that was you?

There are many people like that these days.
You never know if someone sneezes/coughs or wash their hands and touch things.

It’s perfectly fine you protect yourself as much as you can. It means you love yourself that much. Do you love others as much as you do for yourself?

With all due respect. Trusting thy neighbor at the market/store is out of the door or does not apply. You can’t trust no one. I don’t think the business will tell you if someone sneezed or cough out of control in the store. I see a lot of people wear the mask wrong or put on the mask when you look at them or use your phone.

The question is are you protecting yourself or others?

Weird guy. Do you enjoy taunting people in person as well as on the internet?

Taunting? Just simple questions, man. What's next? Permanently delete my account?

I feel like I'm the only one on this board who goes grocery shopping in person.  I did notice that TJ is less crowded than last month.

I go shopping with IHO. We start at Costco, then target, then In n Out. So you are not the only person that is courageous :-)

Be careful when you go out. The new strain and the no maskers that for some reason touch their nose. Lol

We like to go in the last hour of grocery/Costco opening. We end up getting some stuff from Costco, some from Pavilions, some from Sprouts, some from Smart and Final....my wife really likes going in person still.

I go grocery shopping in early mornings.  Fewer people there before you and currently in store.  Wear mask and gloves.

COVID-19 in aerosol form can stay in the air at viable transmission level for up to 30 mins, so having fewer people there before you makes it safer.  Some claim that the virus can remain airborne for up to 3 hours, but realistically you're not crawling on the floor to inhale the virus as it drops.

so shorter people might be at greater risk than taller people?

I say buy some stilts for better protection.  Or at least wear high heals if you’re embarrassed by the stilts.
