COVID Changes

The coronavirus has been spreading rapidly throughout countries. Symptoms of the virus include fever, tiredness, and dry cough. The elderly and young kids can experience severe symptoms and it may cause death; however, eighty percent of patients recover. For the safety of all people–customers, essential workers, students, teachers, and administrators–governors have shuttered many businesses to avoid the spread.

In Jacksonville, places like Walmart, County Market, and Aldi have implemented new rules for the safety of their customers. New rules added to some of these stores include one member of the household allowed in the store at a time, a six-foot distance maintained between people, wearing masks or face coverings, sanitizing carts and other equipment between customer uses, and shortened hours for safety of staff and sanitizing purposes.
