  1. When we seniors go to these stores at 6:00a.m. there’s no wipes,Lysol spray, toilet paper nor paper towels and hardly any meat.

    • We understand your frustration. You might try to schedule a delivery from one of your local stores to obtain those items. It may not be immediate but you will eventually get what you need. We also suggest you ask your neighbors for help.

  2. Do your best to get help from others to get your needs to you and stay in. Another thing I’m doing any mail or packages I spray before bringing in house. God keep you all free from virus. 🙏🙏
