Ten members of the DC Council sent a letter to grocery store operators urging protections for the front line store workers we rely on desperately during this public health emergency. We are grateful that grocery stores have remained open, and we understand the risks workers are taking to serve our residents. Store owners have stepped up big to protect their employees and customers. As the coronavirus spreads, we need to take more steps and make sure there is consistency across stores.
