If you’ve been online, turned on the tv, or gone outside at all in the past few weeks, you’ve probably heard mention of the Coronavirus (now known as COVID-19) only about every other word. With so much information going around from just about every source imaginable and a lot of us feeling uncertain of what the future holds, we thought it might be helpful to gather a few resources to help get you through the next few weeks or months.
Grocery: places like Fred Meyer and WalMart offer grocery pickup, but those slots are filling up fast, so you may want to consider using Instacart, which allows you to order your groceries online and have them delivered right to your front door. Grocery stores are also quickly rolling out special shopping hours for seniors and others with underlying conditions that put them at higher risk of COVID-19, so make sure to call your local grocer and ask if/when they can accommodate you.
Takeout/Food delivery: Many restaurants are closed for eating in, but remain open (some operating on a modified schedule) for takeout and delivery, so again, call your favorite eatery and see if they are still in operation. In addition, some apps like PostMates, DoorDash, and UberEats continue to operate, so you can still get your favorite foods while also practicing responsible social distancing.
