  1. What is being done for those that habe disabilites and health issues. I am at a high risk due to being diabetic?

  2. Probably nothing. Everybody got on the “poor elderly” train and now there won’t be anything left after trucks come because they open at 7am and seniors will get first crack every time. I am also diabetic-a type 1 and just had major surgery but who cares. Continue letting people buy large quantities of food and toilet paper. I haven’t been able to buy healthy foods for almost 2 weeks. I have lost 10 pounds and I am already under weight so I guess slowly starving to death is fine but hey we gave the elderly first crack on the 3 most important days of the week for orders.

      1. Sorry if stating real facts is too hard for you to handle. Poor little baby. Maybe if you were losing weight and unable to eat healthy and keep your immune system up, you would understand. But you can’t relate so the uneducated, ignorant response is to be a tool. Good for you
