Pittsburgh grocery stores offering dedicated hours for seniors and other shoppers vulnerable to coronavirus

As we all (hopefully) know by now, elderly populations and immunocompromised people are more vulnerable to the coronavirus, and more likely to experience severe effects from it. Many families and communities are rallying to help deliver groceries to those in need, but for those who don't have that support (or insist on still doing their own shopping), many stores are reserving time slots for more vulnerable shoppers, including elderly people and those with underlying conditions.
