  1. With masks and even “social distancing”, there’s no reason booths can’t still be utilized. The science shows that even when both people are using a mask, short term contact, under 15 continuous minutes, is safe. And no cookie transaction should come close to that amount of time. You spend more time in front of a cashier at the grocery store.

  2. I see 8 different flavors in the photo above with a sign saying $4 each or 5 for $20 = $4 @. So what are they charging $6 for? why are you saying 6 flavors when 8 are shown? And my household bought 10 to 20 boxes a year for over 20 years, from when our Daughter was a scout till the National Girl Scouting Program announced they were supporting Planned Parenthoods abortion policy back in 2016. there is further proof now that you can see by going to this website: https://www.liveaction.org/news/evidence-girl-scouts-abortion-supporting/. So while I feel sorry for some of the girls, I feel much more sorry for the fact that so many are being taught that it is OK to kill a baby just to have no consequence sex.
