We have all had to adjust our normal routines as the COVID-19 pandemic ebbs and flows across different parts of the country this year. The overall coronavirus recovery rate is estimated between 97% and 99.75%, but many of us continue to take prudent precautions to protect ourselves and the immune-compromised friends and family in our life. This can make something as simple as grocery shopping much harder than usual.
