The ShopRite off of Marin Boulevard in Jersey City is setting aside time starting today, from 7 a.m. to 8 a.m. until further notice, specifically for seniors and people who are disabled or pregnant, before the general public is permitted inside.
 "We're trying our best to facilitate, making it easier, but it's tough for everybody,” says Mayor Steven Fulop. “We're working through this and we're going to fine-tune this in the next couple of days to make it a little bit cleaner."

Unfortunately, finding toilet paper, even with an hour head start, appears to still be difficult.
“As a person of faith, I look at it a little differently,” says Audrey Moyd of Jersey City. “I refuse fear at all levels and I encourage people don't be afraid. It's going to be all right.”
Meanwhile, Dollar General started letting seniors shop by themselves for an hour Tuesday and today, Stop & Shop will have similar opportunities.
