11. Depending on what state you are in

there might be another option. NY has coronavirus policies that regulate businesses serving the public. Our county public health department has a link for people to make official complaints about unsafe practices.

I am going to log a complaint about a local 7/11 store. They have a sign on the door that masks are required, but all the employees routinely ignore it. No matter what day or time I go there EVERY employee wears their mask over the mouth only, with the nose hanging out. They sell pizza by the slice and have a self serve drinks area. Customers walk around the store with masks on their necks, eating pizza and sipping drinks. One day an employee restocking shelves was chatting with another one behind the counter. Both had pushed their masks down to their necks to hear each other shout across the store better. I have stopped going there. Too unsafe.

Another option might be to seek out a store that has good practices and not only shop there, but spread the word about where you shop and why. That way, your daughter will be safer and also be able to set consequences for the Kroger store.

I go to a grocery store whose manager and employees enforce masks and distancing. They call out people without a mask and give them one if they say they don't have one. If they refuse to wear it, the manager escorts them out. If customers push their masks down, employees remind them to wear them or leave. It has not hurt their business at all. People like feeling safe there, especially now that here in western NY cases are rising while the rest of the state remains steady below 1%.
