Maryland County Says Residents Are Using Shopping As An Excuse To Leave Home, Limits Grocery Days By Last Name
This is only a suggestion from Calvert County (MD) officials, but it is still of serious concern for many.
Just as Michigan’s governor put a ban on non-essential items to discourage people from shopping unnecessarily, Calvert County says they want to discourage people from going to the store just to get out.
“Going to the grocery store has shifted from an occasional trip to get necessities to a frequent excuse for getting out of the house,” the health department said.
In response, the county has asked residents to shop only every 5 days and according to their last names.
