It is hard to keep track of all the news coming out these days and I try my best not to get swept up in the 24 hour news cycle. Our family is extremely lucky that both parents can stay home. It looks like BC announced that daycare is still operating for pre-schoolers, but we will most likely keep everyone at home for the foreseeable future. If anyone has any suggestions on how to keep a 21 month old and a 4 year old busy – please let me know!
As for things at Costco there have been some major changes on how things work. The biggest change is that Costco is limiting the number of people inside the warehouse at one time. Downtown Vancouver is only letting a certain people in the store at a time. As one person leaves, another can enter. This system has been implemented to allow people the opportunity to practice “social distancing.”
Also, purchase limits on certain popular items have been implemented. For example, toilet paper, paper towels, baby wipes, hand sanitizer, and disinfectant wipes all have limits. I have read that these are limits per day per member. For example if you try to bypass the limits by going through self checkout and doing two transactions, the system will deny the transaction.
As for me, I’ll keep doing the Monday Updates and the occasional weekend update for the time being (the kids go through a ton of milk and fridge space is at a premium these days) The Monday post will probably also be posted a little later. I’ll be getting to the store a little later in the day to allow the lines to die down a little 🙂
For all of you who are looking to pass the time with a good book (or occupy their kids with some activity books) I thought I would help you all out!
Stay safe and don’t forget to wash your hands everyone!
