Talkback, what online readers are saying about …

Restaurants struggle with mandated take-out, delivery …

Everyone on Facebook: Go out of your way to support locally-owned, non-big-chain restaurants.

Everyone in real life: Hour-long lines at Cookout, Culvers, Chick-Fil-A, etc.

— Mikey Wetzel

The good thing about this article is now everyone knows about this Yummi Banh Mi place. I’ve never heard of it before today.

It’s hard to say though about the $40,000 for sure.

— T.L. Misenheimer

Those with food trucks should go find truckers. They can’t drive their rigs through drive-thru’s and drive-thrus don’t allow walk-ups. They will happily buy from you.

— Amanda                Thomas Evans

Everyone is at risk. It’s tough times for everyone and everyone needs to hang tough. If everyone can turn “me” into “we” and battle it together, We’ll come through it stronger.

— Dawn and Mark Truex

Rowan-Salisbury Schools reflects on first week …

Don’t mind me. Just waiting on the usual gang of folks who will blast Superintendent Lynn Moody and the RSS school board for anything and everything they do or the folks who are completely against all the tech students have access to that have allowed some form of learning to continue.

— Eric Shock

Rowan man who tested positive for COVID-19 …

He chose to publicly tell his story and put his name out there in hopes of helping our community realize the seriousness of this pandemic. Most people do realize the seriousness of it, but maybe his story will reach someone that is not taking it seriously.

— Laura                         Zimmerman-Clark

Why in the world would anyone say anything negative about this man? Prior to the onset of this pandemic, people routinely went wherever they wanted when they didn’t feel well.

Parents sent children to school daily with fevers.

— Sandi Hache

Maybe the health department could do a better job as well since they have yet to notify the Forum of a positive test of one of their members and the Salisbury Post had to handle that for them.

— Donna Marsh Greene

I would like for the Post to try to get a comment from a public health official on the implications of this story for residents of Salisbury and Rowan County.

— Luke Hamaty

I drove by this place on the evening on March 18th and the lot was full with vehicles parked on the grass. My first thought was, “This is not smart.”

— Richard Cleary

Letter: President must lead …

You’re asking our president to resign when he is working around the clock to get help to as many Americans as he possibly can in a situation none of us have ever experienced in our lifetimes. Exactly who do you have in mind to replace him who you believe can do better?

— Todd and Mary Wilhelm

Josh Bergeron: Preparation is better than panic

People are jerks and they are making this worse for everybody.

— Fred Garver

Rowan County confirms sixth COVID-19 case

People need to stay home, follow social distancing when out in public and quit hording up product at grocery and other stores.

— Kyle J Huffman

Local man’s case is example of time between …

Is it possible that this could be a false negative result?

Given his symptoms and his declining health, it seems that he may in fact have a virus despite what the test results are saying.

— Jessica Vess

Town of Faith flies American flags to boost spirits

I am pro-flag flying and pro-America. Take a guess how many immigrants, protesters and anti-Americans you have now offended. Who cares? Fly those flags.

— Danny Patterson

Great town. Wonderful,patriotic people. I have much love and respect for this community.

— Ben Morris

Letter: Time to remove President Trump from office

It is opinions such as this that continuous division and hate rules the day. Don’t you want the president to succeed? Do you truly believe that anyone else could do so much better? I doubt it.

— David Holman

Letter: Burr took right steps after questions arose

As a conservative, I personally believe he should resign. I’m sick and tired of corrupt politicians. I don’t care what side of the aisle he’s on.

— Maria Rossi
