  1. Hello! My name is Michelle Rizzo I am at high risk of contracting covid19. I am 53 soon to be 54 on Aprile 14. I have had a brain aneurysm rupture on me and had brain surgery to put a coil in ,I had a stroke,I have rheumatoid arthritis,osteoarthritis,high blood
    pressure and asthma too. My point in telling you all this because there is special times to shop to keep them somewhat safer. I dont qualify as elderly but I am high risk,in saying that I had to get some things at the store social distancing isn’t being followed for example people waiting in line are not 6 feet apart,trying to keep away from others is very difficult if they are not following the guidlines.i was in line and a man just put his body against mine I was so scared I could not move all I could do was tighten up and say oh my God over and over this needs to be dealt with. Stores need to be more vigilant with these guidelines. Dollar General need a better way to put the registers. Stop and Shop need to enforce the distancing. I am in fear and now have to quarantine myself because I dont know if the man who pressed his body against me has the virus or not.

    Thank You
    Michelle Rizzo
