As you may have heard me mention on the podcast, the Massachusetts Department of Health lifted some of the restrictions placed on grocery stores which were previously in place to help alleviate the spread of the coronavirus. Stores may now allow reusable bags and may increase capacity to 50% of permitted occupancy. It’s important to remember individual stores may chose to put some of their own guidelines in place which should be respected when you plan to shop. It will be a relief to be able to use the reusable bags again (if I can find them in the way back of the trunk of the car where they have been hibernating for all these months).
Some guidelines remain, including morning shopping hours set aside for seniors, which will be a relief for many. Masks, of course, are still required.
