Since the start of the coronavirus pandemic and quarantine measures in the US, dozens of grocery store workers have died of COVID-19 and thousands more have tested positive for the virus.  People are afraid to show up for their grocery store jobs, and despite the unprecedented levels of unemployment, few are volunteering to take on the risky work.
