Social Distancing Day 8: 25th March 2020
Deliveries. The supermarket shelves are bare due to panic buying so some stores have set up early morning time slots for the elderly and vulnerable to get a chance to shop for much needed supplies. Trying to get an online order delivery or even a click-and-collect booking is getting harder. The websites and apps are crashing or not loading due to the sheer volume of people trying to make a booking, I assume. The next available booking at Asda is weeks away. The delivery people are kind and upbeat despite the situation. Our last delivery was stressful and time consuming. When the food was brought into the house, Sarah and I washed or wiped down everything individually, disposing of packaging where it was possible.
