COVID - How to protect ourselves

The Walmart used to be open 24/7 before the virus and now it is open to the public 12 hours a day. The remaining 12 hours are reserved for stocking and because of a lack of employees to open 24/7.

Walmart increased their on-hand inventory of electric scooters for the handicapped and seniors.

Customers can go online, pay for groceries and pickup or have them delivered. The Walmart guy said that worked well before the virus, except now there are not enough employees to do the in-store bundling of the groceries and not enough employees to staff the pickup area.

Oh, some of my info is what was put out at a City Hall meeting. Owed to the virus I won't be attending anymore meetings. All online in the future.

I noticed a few families that usually have only one buggy now have two or more, so they can get around the one like-item per customer.

My nearest Walmart is a one hour drive away. And all Walmarts and essential businesses should still be open 24 hours. If all supplies were delivered curbside, no one would have to go inside except the employees making everyone safer. They can still stock whenever they want...but it's a waste of time. Just fill orders directly from stock. The displays don't have to look pretty or the shelves be full. That's a lot of wasted people power.

Rotate the scheduling. For example, by first letter of license plate or last name or drivers license. People don't have to go to work. They can set an alarm and go get their groceries between 2 and 5 am and then go back to bed. If they can't do that, wait a day or two and they can go between 9 am and noon.

These are just examples and need more thought, but the concept is sound. Supplies are not they only thing that may be considered essential. So are the workers who make it possible to get the essential supplies.
