HOUSTON – H-E-B and Kroger stores in Texas are working to promote social distancing to help slow the spread of coronavirus by encouraging customers to purchase groceries through their delivery and curbside pickup services.

Since grocery shopping is in high demand at the moment, the supermarkets have implemented limits on certain items to help protect the supply chain in Texas like many other businesses across the state.
