It’s April 5, 2020, and I live in Los Angeles County in California. California Governor Newsom has ordered Californians to stay at home in order to slow the spread of COVID-19 (coronavirus). Parks, beaches, schools, libraries, malls and other public places are closed. Only essential businesses are open.
If you’re like me, you are trying your best to be a trooper (even though I really miss being outside and being with friends & relatives) during this COVID-19 pandemic by staying home as much as possible and only going out to get essential items [and to walk/exercise where no one is around].
What’s it like going to the market during the COVID-19 lockdown?
Since the market only wants a small amount of people inside the market simultaneously, I have to stand in line outside Vons market (6 feet apart from people) in order to get my turn to shop inside the market and quickly purchase what my family needs if there are any inventory left (lots of empty shelves and slim pickings). We can now only purchase 1 or 2 quantities per item due to some individuals hoarding supplies. I wear a mask and sanitize my hands often. I use my own grocery bags, but the bagger won’t touch my bags, so I have to bag my grocery at my car. Once I get home, I wash my hands for 20 seconds and disinfect my purse, shoes, and each grocery item. It’s a tedious process, and sometimes I ask myself, “Am I still in U.S.A.?“
