Why is it such a big deal that stores first hour are for people 65+?

are they less likely to catch the virus when only older people are there?

    It reduces the numbers of people in the store at one time. It also lets more vulnerable people in first, when things have been freshly sanitized, to reduce risks to them. And since so many have limited abilities to go shopping, it helps make sure they can get essential items in one trip, when stores have been freshly stocked.

    The idea is that they are shopping when the store first opens, after it has been cleaned overnight, and when it is less crowded, giving them more space away from other shoppers.  They are the group most vulnerable to this, so giving them a few extra protections is a good idea.

    They're less likely to be pushed aside by frantic toilet roll hoarders. There's a new test to see if you're over 65 - do you understand this joke?

    The phone rings and it's a recorded message. "You've won two tickets to an Elvis Presley tribute act. Alternatively you can take £200 in cash. Press 1 for the money, 2 for the show."

    If you don't laugh, you have to wait until 10:00.

    They're more vulnerable to the virus,so it makes sense to give them extra space from the (likely) infected people.
