I really do understand the need to get moving especially locally, but I wish we could have been a bit more patient.

Most of us in this community have no intention of shopping that way and we can already walk around in town if we wish.
Surprisingly, I went shopping yesterday at Target, in Dover (Kent County). The parking lot was full, so I decided to check it out. The huge store didn't seem crowded and they had arrows on the floor, shields around the registers, and the place was monitored for social distancing.....masks required. The grocery section was not busy, but people were buying houseware items, clothing and shoes. I didn't stay long, but I did notice that people had cart loads of items.

I had to go to the bank yesterday because they are closing the branch and I wanted to close the account out. The bank is in the Walmart parking lot. There must have been 50 people queued up waiting to get into Walmart, all 6 feet or so apart. State Trooper at the head and all in masks. Stores like Walmart, Target grocery stores are all going on the number 10% or 20% of occupancy, depending upon the time of day and if they offer senior hours. I was amazed.

I have a state trooper relative who has been assigned, on a rotation basis, to WalMarts for that purpose, and i'm a Walmart customer (Camden). I've been impressed with the police presence at the Camden store (both State and Town), employees doing head counts of customers coming and going, one way in and one way out lines, barricades in place, safety announcements made over the loud speakers every few minutes, and arrows up and down aisles. They are doing a great job! (That's the Camden store in Kent County).

It appeared that way. I did however, read a story that made my stomach turn. A poor trooper was approached by a man with no mask and he was told he needed one. He apparently told the officer that he had a medical condition that he could not wear one and demanded to speak to the store manager, who indicated he could come in provided that he just go in and get what he needed and maintained a 6 ft distance. He was armed for a fight and was prepared to deny answering any questions relative to his medical condition due to HIPAA laws. The officer said he left after speaking to the manager and never went in at all. A discussion then came up on where the HIPAA laws come into play. Is it just limited to Medical offices, hospitals etc. or would it apply in cases like this.

I hate to read the total disrespect of a Trooper.
