I was on ACE inhibitors. My doc has taken me off them, and depending what happens in the next week or so, if I need them, he's prescribed Indapamide.

This is because it's postulated that ACE inhibitors may stimulate ACE2 receptors, which is how the virus gains access to your body. My doc stressed that the evidence isn't that convincing, but there's no evidence against it either.

But if you're on ACE inhibitors, talk to your doc before stopping.
It took me many months and lots of pain and fear of another stroke to find the right BP medicamentation with all my allergies against certain substances that I was previously unaware about. I hope very much that I don’t need to go through that all again.

@OP, I didn't know Manor delivers food. Is it only now? So, I have no experience but I don't see there should be a problem, unless they are overwhelmed with orders like many others.
They’ve only just started offering food as a home delivery option.

They’ve always had an online site for ordering non-food stuff.

You phone the store near to you to place your order and they deliver it to you. It will therefore be quite limited in who can actually take advantage of it.
My neighbour phoned her order through at midday yesterday and received it at 15.30. It was one if the waiters from the cafe who delivered it to her.

Delivery is free but minimum order is 50chf.

I’m also on ACE inhibitors. I emailed my GP earlier this week and she suggested I stay on them as the information is varied and contradictory. So who knows?

First point in links top right is language choice. What's difficult?

OP linked directly to a pdf, for which their choice was German.
Should you not have found the French one yet

I believe you have to be near a store with a food department, so that limits a lot of people.

No, they've been doing home delivery for at least several years now. Never actually used them (I _enjoy_ grocery shopping, and don't enjoy Manor's prices) but looked into it for beer a couple of times, but their threshold for free delivery is chf100, so I never bothered.

Yes, beer. They do 500mk bottles of Charles Wells' Bombardier for just chf2.83. Bargain. I always suspected that someone had screwed up on the prices, but it's been that way for around 3 years that I know of.
That's about 10% less than gastro trade prices for bars from the official importer!

Ah yes, I found this (switch language top right). Actually Fr. 50.00 minimum order sounds very fair to me - the others want Fr. 200.00, no? And they sure beat the delivery time of anyone else with your neighbour.

Interesting to know. I got enough food here. And after munching away the past days, my appetite seems gone - I have not eaten yet. At this new rate I can last forever on what's in my cupboard.

Exactly. Should we be going to the Coop or not.
I don’t want to fill a hospital bed that could have been avoided.

But on the other hand I’m healthy (starting to get panic attacks for the first time in my life and feeling depressed because my daily routine is the only thing that keeps me going, both physically and mentally), but healthy. What do you do?

I think LeShop.ch is 99chf minimum order and I have no idea about coop.
Given that delivery slots are supposedly like gold dust at the moment I haven’t even tried.

We are pretty well stocked here too. We could probably live for a couple of months on what we have here but it could get quite boring and/or weird after a while.

Which just confirms my suspicions. Other English ales on the same shelf are typically twice that price. Bombardier used to be my Normal pint when I lived in Milton Keynes, so I always empty the shelf of however much they have in stock.

My husband was told the same.

My mother in the UK has had a vaccination against pneumonia. We also asked our Doctor about this as it seems to be common to give them to people over 65 in the UK. Only one vaccination is required. I heard a virologist on UK TV say that it may help. Our Doctor here, however, didn't know much about it. She did do some research but suggested we don't do it, although the reasoning seemed to be more to do with the fact that the vaccination is not covered by one's health insurance and it is something a surgery would have to order in. We would have been happy to pay for it. Does anyone have any information/thoughts on the matter?

One other thing my doc said. While it's true that those who had serious symptoms (or worse) had high blood pressure, they also had other issues and the high bp may well be a symptom of those issues. His friend who works in ICU in Germany said that none of the sick people they'd seen had only high bp

Re: Manor Food Catalogue

Called the Manor in Rapperswil, they don't deliver to Rüti apparently.

Tut mir leid indeed.

why do these sites make it so difficult to find a French version? Barstewards.

Unless the site is buggy, apparently no locations that deliver in Suisse Romande

Migros, Farmy and Coop home delivery during COVID-19

Hi all,

Hope everyone is keeping well and healthy.

I belong to one of the at risk groups for the virus, therefore I have had my groceries delivered to my home. I have planned properly and should be set through this upcoming weekend and into early next week. It wasn't a problem until now.

I filled my cart for Migros only to be told that all available slots are full. Apparently they add new spots everyday...has this worked for anybody? They will keep my items in the cart, I just have to keep checking for an open spot...is this a waste of time?

Coop is the same and Farmy is shut down for my area for now. I have plenty of meat in the freezer but will need fresh produce. Does anybody know of other options for the Bern area?

Thanks!

Neuchâtel does, I have my delivery coming tomorrow morning.
It is only if you’re within a 15km radius of the store.

Odd, but yes, it seems that the website says the same thing.

Yet if I put my Valais address in it seems to accept it, so I assume they're simply delivering from further afield - Bern seems the closest one listed. TBF I've not got as far as payment (not much point, as I'm not there anyway) but you'd think it wouldn't let you get as far as that if they couldn't deliver.

But anyway, I know that it's possible to get delivery from items ordered in store (at Monthey, around 17km drive away), so I think there's something wrong with the website or the definition they're using.

Re: Migros, Farmy and Coop home delivery during COVID-19

I would forget about those online shops and go to plan B. I've been trying to get my order through for like 6 days and there's just too much demand and too few slots. I even set the alarm for midnight, got up, tried to get in the queue when it re-sets, but the whole system was crashing with everyone doing the same.

Thoughts on plan B, reach out to neighbours or community volunteers, the EF volunteers, or search out the less known delivery or places with easy pick-up, etc.

Thoughts specifically on vegetables, I go to a local farmer.

Le Shop added the next available slots at midnight.
