    Hello @justinereed73   Pleased to meet you.

    Thank you for being part of a supermarket your time and effort to supply every one is appreciated by the community.

    Especially by myself and others who rely on line deliveries.

    Thank you from my heart.

    I do not know the answer to this did you look at our website COVID  19 information.

    Hi @justinereed73
    Thanks for your post. It's a hugely worrying time and I really understand the concerns that you have.

    As @thespiceman has mentioned we have an information page about Cerebral Palsy and Coronavirus this should help to explain the government's classification of CP during the epidemic. I would speak with your employer and ask are there any duties that you could carry out that are not customer-facing. Use the information on our web page to help you with the discussion. 
    Remember to practise the social distancing measures as well..

    Keep in touch.
