Best to call your local store or check for emails you may have received from them if they are changing their hours. Store hours can vary, especially stores in malls vs. free standing stores. Some, like Walmarts are 24 hours and they may go to different hours than their other stores.
Also, many are offering special hours for Seniors and those at risk.
Check their websites, too, for updated hours.

Thanks. If I remember correctly, the 24 hour Safeway stores around the Bay Area are now limiting hours to 7 am to 9 pm to allow restocking and deep cleaning during down times. Several stores: Lucky, FoodMaxx, Safeway, are offering Senior shopping hours on Tues & Thurs. The first 2 are 6-9 am, SW is 7 am to 9 am. I also heard that the Berkeley Bowl is having senior shopping hours 9--10 am. Their new store hours are 10-7, so seniors get to shop for the first hour before the store is officially open. A friend went and said it was really nice.

All CVS stores here have reduced their hours starting today. My closest store used to close at midnight every night; now they are closing at 7 pm on Sunday and 9 pm on weekdays. Manager said he has no idea for how long this will last. He said the workers will stay after closing to clean and re-stock. Even the 24-hour CVS here is no longer 24 hours.

I saw in either a Wag email or online, that 24 hour Wag will have drive thru open. I assume for prescriptions only, but I have not verified that.

Does anyone have any idea what if any proof is needed for an at risk status to get early admittance? I'm not going to visit my doctor to get a note as that seems like it opens me up to extra risk but I am having a hard time coming up with something. The best I could think of was a treatment bill (my infusion treatments put me in the at risk category) but I cant expect grocery store employees to really know what drug lists put people at risk. I dont want to make two trips because that seems counter productive as well.

An alternative is to go with my husband but have him alone waiting in any lines and me only there for the active shopping. Im coming up on two weeks without shopping and I dont think I can stretch my fresh foods beyond that so I am trying to come up with the best plan. Obviously, like most of us, I could live off of just the stockpile for longer but I am trying to keep access to some fresh foods for as long as possible in case this gets much worse. Please no comments on if I am over reacting, for me I feel this is the most pragmatic plan. But how are other immuno compromised people shopping?

Early admittance may not be your best option as many stores are packed that first hour(not good for exposure in my mind) but 2-3 hours after opening mostly empty. Just a thought but then I don't know how crowded your stores might be at opening.

I'm at high risk too and also a senior. I am also being extremely careful so have not gone anyplace for almost three weeks now. My husband has done a bit of shopping and that even concerns me - hoping he's not bringing something into the house or ends up getting ill. Instead of fresh food, if your husband can shop for you, consider things like frozen fruit and veggies, powdered milk, canned meat - chicken, tuna, ham, etc. Different than what we are used to but tough times often require change. Good luck to you.

As far as proof - you could always call whatever store it is you want to go to and ask them. Get the person's name who gave you the info so you don't get turned away at the door by the guards (hubby said our stores have guards outside during the special hours).
