It shouldn't be a big deal but with a large number of people unable to afford healthcare, and the anti vax crowd growing there's a small chance that this could be interesting.

Not shut down. Confessions are available. Last rites. Baptisms. And even Eucharist. It's just not public. Check with your parish priest to access the sacraments. If he doesn't offer you an avenue, find another who will.

This past week I was able to attend mass with appropriate distancing as well as an hour of adoration.
How'd he handle communion? Same as usual?

No lay persons on the altar. Just two priests whose hands were washed. The Eucharist was placed on the tongue to kneeling recipients at the communion rail. It's the cleanest and safest way possible.

I did not receive out of respect for my wife who asked me not to risk it. But I am quite confident it was safe.

I've also heard of parking lot masses with drive through distribution. I don't think that sounds nearly as cautious actually.

I bring glad tidings!!!

Just returned from Costco. They have enough toilet paper for the 7th Atlantic Fleet! I have never seen so much toilet paper in my life. Pallets & pallets of it, and paper towels.

They have so many cases of water and all kinds of different brands now, that they even have the pallets going down the aisles in between the freezers!

Absolutely no line to get in, like last week, when I saw the line to get in, & just gave up. They are spraying down all the carts, & they have them all roped off, so that you only get one after they have been cleaned.

The employees are all behind the shields now at check out & at the desk, so no one sneezes on them.

I told the guy at the check out, that I wish our health care providers had the same suppliers that Costco has, so they could get their supplies that fast. He said some of the warehouses are still struggling for supplies, like the ones in New York.

Well......I guess the hoarders have run out of money & finally left some toilet paper for the rest of mankind.

Did they have disinfectant wipes? Those are the first thing I’m running low on - seem to be harder to find than TP.

Have you tried Dollar Generals in your area? I saw a two pack at the one close to me that I stopped in at today. I didn't buy it, but I did pick up a 12 pack of their TP and a can of their Lysol brand.

I'm hoping the Bay Area sees the results of its shelter-in-place order by the end of the week. Not great news so far,number of new cases still increased from yesterday

Oops......did not look. So I asked the person that I was shopping with & she said she did not look either, but she did not notice any wipes in anybody’s baskets.

So I checked the Costco website & they have the Clorox wipes, but instead of a 2 day delivery time, it might take 4-5 days.

BTW.......tell your wife thanks for the idea about using the wipes to clean an iPhone! My little phone looks so much better!👍🙏🏻
