We have never cancelled this event before, but like every other aspect of our lives right now, we're writing the playbook as we go.
Stay Smart, Stay Safe, Stay Healthy.
Orders that regulate movements and private enterprise during the pandemic aren’t about individualism or collectivism. They’re about life, or sickness and death.
We stay at home to stop the spread of the virus and save lives, but it only works if others stay home, too, if they can.
The virus is largely spread by personal contact. This is a community crisis, and a community-wide effort will be the only thing that ends it. Emery’s ill-informed broadside, and others like it, undercut that understanding and will inevitably make more people sick.
Walmart has sped up hiring, too -- particularly for cashiers and stockers. To quickly turn applicants into employees, Walmart is encouraging people to apply online or simply send a text message. The retailer is skipping formal interviews and written offers. Instead, it’s asking store managers to screen candidates and make verbal offers over the phone, company spokeswoman Robyn Babbitt said.
