When his alarm goes off at 3:30 a.m., 54-year-old Jeff Reid knows it's time to begin his day and prepare for an eight-hour shift on the front lines of the coronavirus pandemic. As a grocery store worker, Reid never imagined he'd find himself in this position. "You go from being just the everyday hardworking guy -- get up in the morning, take a shower, say my prayers and put on a happy face and go to work -- whereas now, you know, basically I'm putting my life on the line every day," he told ABC News. Reid works in the meat department at a Giant Food grocery store in Silver Spring, Maryland, just outside of Washington, D.C. He's also the shop steward at the store for the UFCW Local 400 union.
