Even my (mildly intermittently) asthmatic self was willing to risk the occasional grocery run...until today, when my stepmother in NY tested positive and was hospitalized. She and my dad are both at risk because of age and medical conditions. No idea how she got infected; they had been quite cautious, wearing masks outside, etc. and are both pretty neurotic under normal circumstances. We are all crossing our collective fingers that my 79-year-old asthmatic dad doesn't get infected.

Now I am not so crazy about the idea of even brief grocery runs. There is going to be a CSA, a lot of vegetable gardening, some ordering of groceries for home delivery, and possibly the occasional round of curbside pickup by Tom Scud at one of the small local grocery stores.
