The news around the COVID-19 outbreak is constantly changing, but information about food safety and how to keep yourself healthy is crucial right now. Here is a comprehensive list on the foods you should be stocking up on during this period of social distancing, as well as information about your local grocery stores' changing hours, an explanation of "no-contact delivery," and a guide on how to help your community and its businesses throughout closures.

As the coronavirus outbreak spreads throughout the U.S., it has continued to touch almost every facet of our lives. Perhaps most noticeably, grocery stores have seen high volumes of shoppers looking to prepare for longer stints at home. The crowds, in addition to guidelines from state and local authorities, have prompted many stores to change their hours to make sure stores can be cleaned and restocked and employees can stay healthy.

Below, we've outlined some of the changes in store hours and policies. It's worth noting that this is a constantly changing situation, so we will update as much as we can, but your local store could be operating differently. It's always best to check before making a trip.

Finally, you should only be visiting the grocery store if you're feeling healthy and only if you truly need to. Don't hoard items and be sure to wash your hands often and wipe down carts and baskets.

Albertsons

Stores will be open with normal hours but the chain is "asking customers to respect quantity limits of select, high-demand items (like hand sanitizers and household cleaners)."

Aldi

Some Aldi locations may be temporarily closed or have adjusted store hours, according to a statement but no exact locations were given. Please contact your local store for more details.

Costco

Costco has implemented limits on certain items and has "taken steps to control the number of members in our warehouses," as well as asking both members and employees to practice social distancing.

Many Costco locations have also implemented designated hours for elderly shoppers and those with physical disabilities, according to signs posted online. The hours will vary by location so check with your local Costco to see what they're offering.

Harris Teeter

The stores locations will close at 9 p.m.

Kroger

The chain has updated its store hours in some locations "based on local circumstances." You can see which stores are affected here. It is also limited how many "cold, flu and sanitary products" customers can get per order.

Publix

Stores will now close at 8 p.m. Select items will also be subject to purchase limits. The chain is also designating Tuesday and Wednesday mornings from 7 a.m. - 8 a.m. for customers age 65 and over.

Target

Stores will begin to close at 9 p.m. and the first hour of shopping each Wednesday will be reserved for "vulnerable guests." You can read more about it here.

Wal-Mart

Stores will be open from 6 a.m. to 11 p.m. until further notice. Also important to note the chain has "authorized our store managers to manage their inventory, including the discretion to limit sales quantities on items that are in unusually high demand."
