    Was there a positive case at that Walgreens?

    I suspect Will Hasty is Dozier Hasty’s son; Dozier is publisher of The Brooklyn Eagle. I notice several of the photos were taken where Frost lives.

    I read today that Wal-Mart (which I’m not normally a fan of) is enforcing one-way traffic in its grocery aisles. Key Food and the others around here should consider that so to keep things more orderly.

    Also, if you can’t order groceries online, visit the stores at odd hours so the aisles aren’t so crowded.

    As well as using mask and gloves, I also carry a small squirt
    bottle with 70% alcohol. Gloves can easily lose ability to be
    Most of us women have bunches of these bottles laying around.

    Gloves are mostly a waste of time. The virus cannot be absorbed through the skin and gloves will transfer it just as easily from surface to surface. Best to keep sanitizing you hands and above all, don’t touch your face.
