As Ithaca residents continue to practice social distancing to slow the spread of COVID-19, few have been able to skip the inevitable trips to the grocery store or restaurants.

While reliance on mobile delivery services — such as Ithaca-to-Go, GrubHub or Instacart —  has increased, other Ithacans continue to shop in person.
