In Maryland, someone from one of our local public health departments said the reason that liquor stores stayed open and considered essential businesses is because the MD Dept of Health was concerned about alcohol withdrawal and potential need of hospitalization/death during the first wave of the pandemic. Is that a consideration in other states?

It is too easy to get alcohol when it is sold everywhere?

We must be speaking about Older Adults, rather than "elderly," individuals. It is past the time that we all get on the same page about our language. Everyone involved here can help with that. Let's commit to NOT talking about "the elderly" any more, and always speak about "Older Adults!" Thanks for modeling that for all of us, Fred!

Again, THANKS so much, Fred, for noting the need for "person first," language, in addition to aging appropriate and recovery oriented language, all are important, along with person centered language!
