Report from the street
Locally, I am aware of no testing sites. There must be some because confirmed cases have been reported (radio). I went to a supermarket early on the same day as this Town Hall. The parking lot was jam packed. I estimate there were around 300 people in the store. No one, not store employees, not shoppers, respected social distancing recommendations, not even half of the recommendation. Percentage of people wearing masks was in the single digits, 5-10 per cent estimated. One week prior in the same store, only a handful of people were wearing masks; these were presumably the monied people because the masks were the fancy type with little filters in front. Checkout employees were wearing blue disposable gloves, but none were for sale. The store was out of stock on several items (somewhat normal for this store). Some food banks in the area have suspended operations.
