Speak Up: Camden Walmart temporarily closes store, as COVID surges

Posted

Walmart has temporarily closed its Camden store amid a winter surge in COVID-19 cases and hospitalizations. The store was closed Sunday, according to a company statement. The closing, which will allow the store to be thoroughly cleaned, sanitized and restocked, is part of a company-initiated program enacted in response to the increase in COVID-19 cases nationwide.

  • What about the food? Vegetables and fruit will spoil or expire. — Keith Miller
  • I’m sure they will send it to another Walmart. — Debbie Matarese Mikus
  • The store is only closing for a couple days. — Ashley Bauguess
  • Thanks to that, the Aldi next door has very little bread and basics. Good for Aldi, bad for Walmart. — Melissa Epperly
  • I’ll be in this morning. No mask, no vaccine and no worries, and nothing any of you can do about it. — Scott Jones

More snow for Delaware

The National Weather Service had projected a 90% chance of rain and snow in the Dover area last week.

  • Last storm didn’t leave any snow on the sidewalks and roads in northern Delaware. Didn’t even bury the grass in the yard. — Steve Durnan
  • I’m in Newport. My grass was covered. — Christine Graham
  • I have 10-12 inches in my yard in Kent County. — Je Roger
  • Over a foot in Lewes. Pretty much melted today, as per usual. — Jane Darlington Williams
  • I live in Kent County, and we got 9½ inches of that crap, and now, they are saying that there will be more!? You can always come down here and have it all if you want!? — Tammy Shinn
  • Why is it that, with every snowstorm, there’s a run on snow shovels? Do people throw them away when they are done with them? I’ve had the same three for years. — Bob Hice
  • They break. — Dan Long
  • People should also listen to the weather forecasters, unlike those that were stuck on Interstate 95 for hours and hours or that incompetent president that put lives in danger by flying from Wilmington to Washington, D.C., in that snowstorm. — Edward Shay
