COVID-19 Grocery shopping
I finally tried to go to one of our bigger stores on Monday March 23rd after I got off of work. There are a lot of hit and miss with items. Plenty of fresh produce and meat so that was a definite bonus. Still no toilet paper but there was evidence to show that they did recently have some though. Plenty of buns but not much bread, not many options for any kind of beans, ramen levels are low but there was some, still no Spam either.
Update on Ohio
Today is Wednesday March 25th, currently there are 704 confirmed cases and 10 deaths. The stay at home order went into effect on Monday at 11:59 pm. At that point I still had to attend work as they considered the trucking industry essential. The factory I work at does not employ very many people at this time due to the economy. We have previously already laid people off in hopes of maintaining hours. When I got to work Tuesday I found out that PACCAR Inc had shutdown all plants until April 6th, due to the economy and the effect the coronavirus has had. From my understanding MACK trucks had already been on a shutdown due to economy and how hard their area was hit by coronavirus. So as of Tuesday a majority of my plant has been temporarily laid off until April 6th. I am now safely at home with my husband waiting out the coronavirus until then.
