Why don't you have coronavirus when you work in a grocery store with many people? That's like asking why you don't have a bad cold or the flu from working in a grocery store with many other people. You're not necessarily going to come down with a cold or the flu OR coronavirus just because you work around other people.
Yes - coronavirus can and does attack "older" people, just the same as it attacks anybody. But, an "older" person isn't any more susceptible to it than is anyone else. The virus is dangerous to "older" people (and to anyone else) if that person already has pre-existing and serious respiratory problems, or if their immune system is already suppressed.

Because you haven't been exposed, plain and simple. The vast majority of people in the U.S. haven't been exposed and those that have are mostly in self-quarantine.
This NOT something to take lightly. It is very serious and can be deadly. Young, healthy people with good immune systems are less likely to get severe illness but that doesn't prevent actual infection. You can't be certain you haven't been exposed unless you get tested, but having no symptoms is a good sign.
Still, there are 65K known case of COVID-19 in the US in a population of 330 Million. Of those, roughly half of all cases are in New York and New Jersey. These numbers are a fraction of a percent of the total U.S. population even if the actual number of people infected is 10x what is known.

Probably people you have been in contact with don't have the virus yet but it is so easy to get, Price Charles diagnosed with it today and I don't imagine he goes to supermarkets or wherever.
