As the Memorial Day is approaching, it may be an official start to grilling and outdoor smoking for many, but due to COVID-19, many grocery stores are having limited stocks of commercial beef pork processors.

As most of the restaurants are closed, many farmers and butchers have enough products to sell.

Shelly Herman and Irv Cernauskas have been delivering local products purchased fresh from farms, which include organic produce, meat, and cheese for all the Chicagoland.

The Hofherr Meat Company, which is just a few miles away, has one of the best butcher shops in the North Shore region, which delivers all over the area.

Lorette is located in the Austin neighborhood and is providing drive-thru and walk-up testing since April. The virus is proving to be more harmful to communities of color.

"Austin is an underserved community in terms of health care in general," said Erin Borders, director of outpatient services. "Most of our patients who come to Loretto and in the community have comorbidity."

Around 300 specimens are collected in Loretto daily and are then sent to state labs for processing. According to hospital officials, it takes 5 days to get reports, and delivery of the results is a challenge in such a time.
