Senior Shopping Hours

Some of the local supermarkets are opening up at earlier hours so older citizens may come and shop. This is to help reduce the spread of COVID-19, also known as the coronavirus. People ages 60 and older, and those with pre-existing health conditions, are at higher risk of serious complications should they contract the virus, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
